  • PLA works well
  • No supports, rafts or brim necessary
  • 0.3 mm layer height (for faster printing)
  • 100 mm/sec or higher print speed

About Us

Bot Camp is an educational robotics laboratory for students 10 and up, founded by FIRST Robotics Competition world champion Shawn T. Lim. We teach students how to design, build and program robots that play sports -- coincidentally the same skills used when designing these visors. Like most of you, the COVID-19 situation has impacted Bot Camp, and our lab is currently closed. Our staff have kept busy trying to find various ways to help our community, including the design of this visor…

…but our day jobs are teaching kids how to do this kind of stuff!

Due to the closure of Bot Camp’s lab, we now offer 1:1 online tutoring in robotics, and several academic subjects.
