This example is for a bolt together chassis that I like but I see no reason a more traditional Commercial type chassis cant be made. I hope to make a chassis that can be used for a series. That wont require soldering.

I assume you know it's already made.

 

It's called an FCR.

 

Up until the recent increase, they were $17.59.(they are now $24.99)

Not my target anyway. I would also like to think I could do better.

The first top video was very cool. I wonder how many hours went into the design and setup for the software, and then how long it takes to actually mill all of the pieces necessary for each chassis.

I think not a small amount of time but you build upon your work. This is exactly what I will be doing.
