Day 44: Reveal and CAD

Ultraviolet 2016
Here is the reveal of our 2016 FRC Stronghold robot, Ultraviolet. The video is of our practice robot. The competition robot will be very similar. We have plans for several more additional features for the coming weeks.
The above link is the full CAD of the current state of the robot. Feel free to use anything you like from it. It’s a bit rough in places but it’s mostly complete.
