Everybot Progress Photos + Gluing Balls

Everybot

Our Everybot project should be driving next week. We made a few changes from the original design already but overall, it’s mostly stock. The two biggest changes are it has a NEO for a climber motor and only has one set of gear on the arm.

Ball Glue

Team update 16 has a link to a ball repair guide for events. We wanted to test the glue that is specified and see how repaired balls felt. We bought the glue and repaired a ball and left it overnight. It seems to seal up the cuts pretty well but with our first test ball, it didn’t cause the cuts to become airtight again so the ball was still easy to compress, similar to before we glued the cuts. The places that are glued do feel a bit harder, then normal places on the ball. We glued the rest of our cut-up balls today and we should be able to test shooting them next week. (we are taking the weekend off, everyone needs a break)
