Let’s Talk Titles

This year we are going to change things up:
The Title of the part no longer must be the part number.
Again Title =/= Part Number

The title may be English word that are used to describe the part
Good examples are:
* Right Chassis Tube
* Left Chassis Tube
* 2.375” Chassis Axle
* Output Transmission Axle
* 0.500 Chassis Transmission Spacer

Please keep these professional, no slang!!! See example on the left

Make sure your titles are descriptive, use quantifiable words or dimensions to title your parts. Use spaces between words, every first letter of the words should be capitalized.

Please refrain from using all caps, any words that reference the rev or version of the part ‘REV0’, Greek Letters ect. Ect.

Make sure the title is unique and it can’t get mixed up with another part in the robot, a good way to avoid this is using the sub system it belongs to in the title.
