Sugru, New bot building material.

I found this on YouTube and thought it was a pretty neat way to make some strong, flexible, temperature resistant robot parts. All the info is in the video, but basically it is like polymorph, only silicon based. Enjoy.

I have been designing products for DAGU for over 2 years now and have always tried to provide product support here on LMR. One problem I have had is that sometimes the manuals are too big to upload.

If you have any problems with these kits then you should ask questions in the component section. I answer questions there so that others with similar problems can look for answers.

The components on LMR are here:
