This drivetrain is not for the faint-of-heart. While it is designed around the VEX 6" mecanum wheels, this drivetrain could easily be modified to fit any 6" VEX or AndyMark wheels. Basically, it's great for if you want to be able to easily drive over stuff.


  • All strengths of 4" mecanum
  • Able to drive over stuff
  • + Intimidation factor


  • All weaknesses of 4" mecanum
  • Very heavy
  • Fairly expensive
  • Requries more part modification than other baseBot assemblies


Full Assembly - Full detail, down to the screws. You can carefully analyze this assembly to put together your robot if using this configuration as designed.

Starting Point Assembly - Use this assembly as a jumping-off point for your CAD work so you can easily make drastic changes to the assembly and plate designs.

baseBot ORIGIN Plates -  Download the open source plate designs to use for your own custom robot design! We ask you to try to include the baseBot logo somewhere on your final robot design, but feel free to go nuts and modify these plates as much as you'd like. If you use these designs in any capacity, tweet us some photos of your robot so we can feature them in the Gallery section on our site!

Bill of Materials

Bill of materials coming soon. (If you're wanting to build this assembly and you need a bill of materials, tweet @SURFACEFUSION and tell him he's a slacker. He'll get it done, he just may need a bit of a push. 😉
