~ Robocraft in-game description

Chassis cubes are the basic building blocks of Robocraft, which comprise the basis on which you build your robot.

Types

There are four basic types of cube, each with its own properties:

Cube
A basic cube used to create the main body of your robot. Note that these used to be free, but now cost 10 robits.
Glass
A cosmetic cube used to make cockpits. Has the same stats as comparable chassis cubes.
Helium
These blocks are lighter than air, so they can provide upward lift and useful for airborne robots. They take up more CPU than normal blocks (6 CPU per block).
Rods 
They have less mass and equivalent health per CPU, than chassis cubes, but only two connection points (useful for flyers).

Basic Cubes

Basic chassis cubes come in a number of distinctive shapes. Most of these cubes are available in glass form. Glass cubes cost 40 Robit.png, and have the same statistics as their respective normal cubes.

Damage interaction

Chassis Cube health value are now modified by overall Robot Ranking (at least as far as the game community knows).

Knowing that when you take damage, it splits to other cubes that are connected to the one affected, placing them in a certain order can give you certain advantages and more resistance to heavy firing.

You can instead use a method called 'triforcing' on your robot so it redirects the damage in a horizontal row. Usually, to create this formation you will need edge blocks. When you take damage from a shot on this formation, only the two blocks on the left and the right will absorb the damage. The first of each side will absorb 50% of the initial damage and the second will take even less damage. This type of armor formation is very strong against lasers since it will take a lot of time to drill through it.

Triforcing can serve as an alternative to electroplates, which are weaker in health per pFLOP, but can regenerate damage and are more compact, allowing you to place cubes underneath. Even with heavy electroplating, it is advisable to have as many CPU invested in armor blocks to prevent a rapid death if the enemy hits something other than your electroplating.
