hey hey hey!
while the programming team had commandeered the transmissions, we worked on designing a motor mount for the arm mechanism (there are some very nice drawings in GENERAL 2), as well as putting together the new wheel and putting it on!
Sent j-rock on an ace run for washers and shaft collars (we never seem to have enough…hmmm…who has been eating the shaft collars???)
so now we have washers so the shaft collars are not as hard to install on the wheels.
made a list of very important measurements. arms stuff. chassis stuff. other stuff.
and now we are about to mount the transmissions on the robot! yay for chain!
Doug, Richard, and Beth are working on the RACK! w00t! go them!
GOALS: end of the week (saturday at the latest) have a running prototype. yay!
REMINDER! PLEASE COME TO TOMORROW’S BUILD-PROGRAMMING-MENTOR MEETING AT 5.30. WE WILL BE DISCUSSING THE REST OF THE SEASON AND WHAT WE NEED FROM EACH OTHER TO ACCOMPLISH OUR GOAL!!!
over and out.
