The Vexmen of Brandywine Robotics

Order Parts

This shop is for Vexmen ordering only. It is not a real shop and is for club internal use only.
We are now exclusively using our new online parts ordering process. This online order form does not actually order the parts but it helps assemble the needs of each teams in a consolidated manner. That’s why there is no credit card entry at check out. The reports at the end make it an easier process for us to manage ordering for all of our teams.

The good news – no more spreadsheets! The bad news – we have to keep up on the parts into our local catalog ourselves. I know there are a few missing items and some items in our catalog are no longer available from Vex. So please alert us to discrepancies.

Try and evaluate what you plan on building within the next week and order ahead of time. Plan plan plan!

However we’re not made of money. So a few simple rules:
1) Since Aluminum is 2-3 times the price of steel, you must have a prototype or CAD drawing of what you are looking to build (that subsystem, not necessarily the whole robot)
2) Pneumatic kits are above our budget. If you would like to use them, please plan on buying them yourself.
3) Please show your coding and plan of action if you would like to use gyros or accelerometers

Every Thursday morning at 11:30am we will place an order for parts at Vex. It takes about a week to receive parts sometimes so even more reason to plan ahead.

Our hosting provider is a tad slow (but really cheap) so the interactivity with the shopping site is a bit slow. So we also have an alternative bulk order form where you can type ahead for the parts you want to order.

Once submitted we will assemble the week’s orders on Thursdays at 11:30 and process them at once. We will approve each order so it is not a free for all – we still have an expected parts budget.

At the end of the ordering process you receive an email. I am not sure the team email distribution lists will work as a destination address at this point so please forward the parts order confirmation to your team distribution so there is not duplication of orders.

Vex Parts Selection

Please select from the following Vex products for your team’s order. These forms do not directly order the parts but allow us to consolidate the order into one single order per week.

If you have toruble or if there is a part missing, please use the old spreadsheet to help us order parts in a timely manner.

When complete, email it to your team email address and we’ll assemble everything that Thursday for an order.
