2020 Day 28: Tower Rails & Feeder Station

Tower Rails

IMG_20200131_180045.jpg
We have our tower rails mounted in place on the protobot. Tomorrow it will get shafts, belts, shooter wheels, & motors. We will also add a basic electrical system to this robot to test it. The protobot won’t have a full climber but we will use it to fit test many of the climber and buddy climb parts.

Feeder Station

We briefly tested how balls will fall into our robot from the feeder station. We are considering adding another bar and some thin lexan to the top of the intake to prevent balls from ball down near the intake rollers instead of into our funnel.
