I stumbled across this stackable plastic storage box today:
It occurs to me that this (or several of these, stacked up and bolted together) might make a convenient body for a robot project I've been thinking about. But that assumes that (1) I'll be able to cut through this material (probably polypropylene, I would guess) without too much fuss, and (2) there aren't any serious "gotchas" with using such a plastic body that a newbie like me would trip over.
I'm imagining things like cutting rectangular holes on the bottom for wheels, drilling mounting holes all over the place, and maybe some ventilation holes or slots (if such are needed) on the sides.
Almost everybody here has more experience with this sort of thing than I do; would you foresee any problems with this? Should I be worried about static electricity? Breaking my dremel heads? Explosive reactions with anything that happens to leak out of a battery? Something else?
