1/31/15 Build Session

For today’s blog post, I would like to focus our attention on our highly capable CAD team that has now successfully assembled a complete robot design on CAD. With this design complete, it will be much easier for our build team to cut, drill, and assemble parts on the robot. Thanks CAD team!

1/29/15 Build Session

On this build day, we CADed up the chassis and the lift mechanism for the robot. Some of the builders made a prototype of the lift mechanism so we can test our design in the field elements. Mr. Zook brought in our new 3D printer, this will allow us to print our own gears and trinkets to give to fellow Alliance members.

Recently, our determined team has overcome challenges like building the chassis and the collector mechanism, as well as some stupendous CAD work. Keep up with the magnificent work during this build season, and make sure to check out the calender and student pages under the resources tab!

1/27/15 Build Session

Build season is in full swing, and team 4276 is on track to have a top tier robot built by bag day. Our system for lifting totes is in the fine tuning stage, and the robot is finally starting to come together as a whole. The next few weeks are sure to pose many challenges to our initial design, however there is no setback our amazing build team can’t come up to a creative and innovative solution to.

1/15/15 Build Session

Today was the fifth build session of the season, and our team is working very hard towards the common goal. Programmers learned how to use the new roboRio robotics controller, and some of the build team members put together four new mini gearboxes and soldered wiring for encoders. Others continued working on the prototype tote collector, and they experimented with different wheels and contact points to see which one does the job the best. We are now exactly one month away from the Los Angeles Scrimmage, and so it is very important for the team to stay focused in order to finish the robot before then.
