Product Overview

The TileRunner Mecanum is a 4-wheeled standard duty mecanum drive base designed especially for the FIRST Tech Challenge community. Get set to strafe with four PicoBox Uno Plates (am-3423) replacing the two PicoBox Duos of the standard TileRunner. You'll receive four 4" standard-duty mecanum wheels (am-2538) instead of Stealth Wheels, as well as all the spacers, shafts, and gears to get you up and running.

The foundation of this drive base is a set of 0.090 inch thick aluminum components that provide a sturdy structure to build on. All of the holes in the sheet metal are on a global 16mm pattern, which integrates nicely with many structure components already on the market for FIRST Tech Challenge teams. The included plastic belly-pan increases the rigidity of the frame and provides ample mounting options for your electronics.  The TileRunner Mecanum comes with 4" Standard-Duty Mecanum Wheels (instead of stealth wheels), NeveRest Classic 40 motors and PicoBox Gearboxes with multiple gearing options. The new AndyMark Nub is used throughout the TileRunner, providing a robust D-bore interface that greatly improves torque transmission compared to standard set-screw hubs.

Note: This product ships as an unassembled kit of parts.

Gear Ratios
The kit comes with 3 different gear ratio options, so that you can experiment and understand how changing the gear ratio affects the driving performance of the TileRunner.
  • 45 Tooth and 35 Tooth gear combination yields a 1:0.78 over drive
  • Two 40 Tooth gears yeild a 1:1 ratio
  • 35 Tooth and 45 Tooth gear combination yields a 1:1.28 reduction
2019 Updates:
M3 NeveRest mounting bolts are now 5mm long instead of 6mm. Assembly guides have been updated to match the 6-32 Hex Head hardware and detail has been added to help clarify build steps.
