Day 32: Sheetmetal should be in tomorrowLook for our big blog post tomorrow night after we get our sheetmetal back.We have been preparing all our parts to assemble the robots once we get our parts back tomorrow.We have been printing parts including a nice camera mount.Also preparing our sh [Read More]

Day 30: Superbowl Bot BuildingWe are still working on getting our parts ready for the sheet metal delivery.We have our gears and wheel modules ready to be bolted up to the sheet metal when it arrives.We also have powder coated Versaplanties for the competition robot ready to go a [Read More]

Day 29: Adventures in Making a Rack and PinionNow that sheet metal has been sent out, it's finally time for us to buckle down and figure out some of the smaller parts on our robot. Among these smaller parts is the plate we plan on using to cut off individual lanes in our three-wide shooter. [Read More]
