Day 10: CAD progressing even furtherHere is a portion of the CAD we have done for the robot. The drive train and a portion of the intake will get their Rev 1 versions sent to our laser cut sponsors tomorrow to be made so we can get it setup on the practice robot to make sure everything [Read More]

We opened up our lab to three teams from the area to come in and get assistance with the start of their seasons. We did a strategy and design talk in the morning to discuss the game. We looked at the different methods to easily score points, etc.We w [Read More]

Day 8: Start of Week 2Long Saturday in the lab we are working though getting the prototypes assembled and finding the sticking points that we need to improve.The intake is much closer to fully being able to be tested. The over the bumper mecanum arm is mounted by without [Read More]

Day 7: ClimbingWe continued working on prototypes, including retro fitting one of our off-season robots to be a climbing test bed. We had it do a test climb but we had attached the rope to it. Now to learn how to grab the rope.The prototype drive train is made from [Read More]

Day 6: Prototypes are getting closerAs we said earlier we have made an effort to make sure we are doing a better job of actually designing our prototypes this year.Before we build a prototype for an over the bumper intake roller we will actually do the 2D CAD and parts of the 3D design [Read More]

Most of the day was spent in CAD refining the designs of our prototypes.We changed the design of the bottom plate of our ground intake to include a moving belt instead of a lexan plate so it isn't required to ride on the ground.Our drive train i [Read More]

Day 4: RecapWe're now 4 days through the season. This is when teams are finalizing their initial designs and beginning to build more high quality prototypes.Strategy BreakdownOne of the main goals for the first few days of the season is to make sure everyon [Read More]

Day 3: Rethinking our intial plansWe started the day by going back over the strategy notes from Saturday and seeing what assumptions we made that may not actually be true.This led us to rethink several of the front runner ideas for mechanisms on the robot.We had originally eliminated [Read More]

Day 2: Full STEAM aheadRobot Design is BeginningWe started brainstorming designs and working through solutions to our strategy goals. A bunch of sketches were done today for various parts of our robot design. There is a ton of things to in this game and it's going to [Read More]

Day 1: STEAMworks has arrivedAfter months of anticipation the 2017 FRC game is finally here. Check out the video below.Today we accomplished the most important task of the season. We read and understood the game manual. This is a critical task for anyone involved with FRC. If yo [Read More]
