Day 12: Second Ice DayWe couldn't meet Tuesday or Wednesday this due to hazardous road conditions and closed highways.We are too the stage we call Block CAD. None of parts are how they would actually be manufactured but they are more than just two D sketches. If we h [Read More]

Day 11: Ice day in Houston, this is weirdWe actually didn't meet for the first time in recent memory. The roads were iced and we have a deep freeze for over 24 hrs which rarely happens in Houston.Since we can't work on our prototypes, we wrote out our entire current robot plan als [Read More]

Day 10: Wooden ChassisQuick update again today. We are continuing some of the testing and finally deciding on a drive train. We didn't want to rush into our drive train design this year as we knew it could change a lot based on our robot design.We still have some tes [Read More]

Day 9: Climber Progress and Intake Prototype CADJust a short update of what we are working on. Our current plan is to have two seperate climbing methods depending on if we need to lift a partner or if we can climb alone.With a partner we will use our fork lift and winch to lift both our robots at [Read More]

Day 8: MCCC and lifting prototypes continueLifting PrototypesWe purchased a lever chain hoist this morning so that we could test different lifting concepts without having a robot cable of lifting another just quite yet.Keeping a partner level is definitly going to be a challenge. We are going [Read More]

Day 7: Power Up Tips & Resources plus some of our prototypesWe are a week into the season and a bunch of resources, examples, and documents have been published about the game. We're also giving links to some of the robots we have been looking at that have inspired us so far.FRC Official Power Up Rules Up [Read More]

Day 6: Redesigns coming early this year.We're not sure if you call it a redesign when you never really started designing the first option. Today's design meeting led us back to our priorities of scoring cubes as fast as possible. Time is points in this game and the faster you can [Read More]

Day 5: The Q&A is openToday brought the first clarifications of multiple rules from the GDC in the Q&A.https://frc-qa.firstinspires.org/Climber/Bumper QuestionsTwo critical Q&As are Q4 and Q8. They clarify the definition of a floor and how the robot will be transp [Read More]

Today was a relatively quite day. Mostly finishing up some of our field elements and doing a lot of thinking about the robot.SubsystemsWe have our subsystems pretty much rounded out for this years robot.Drive TrainElevatorWristIntakeHook (The elevato [Read More]

Day 3: Intake all the CubesThe focus of today's meeting was to catch people up on our analysis from the weekend and then start thinking about intakes. Every robot this year needs to be able to intake cubes and do so effectively. The best robots in the world will have some [Read More]
