Week 2 consisted of a lot of CAD drawings. Our goal this year has been to utilize that resource a lot more. We want to perfect our robot on the computer before we start building it. It seems to be working quite well. We also had Todd Kraft, from PTC come and help us with our CAD drawings. A million thanks to him, we appreciate the help a lot!
Beginning Week 3, we made a timeline of our goals. We are sticking to this like glue. Under each of the dates, we have the items we want finished and the leaders for each one. Our timeline is as follows:
January 30:
-Robot Base - Andy, Shawn, Alex P
-Driver Station - Nicole, Grant
-Bridge/Bump - Jake
February 6:
-Feeder - Logan
-Vision System - Elliot
-Targets - Jake
-Bumpers - Marjorie, Noah H., Carl
February 13:
-Shooter - Carl, Zach, Josh, Branden
February 18:
February 21:
-SHIP DATE!!!!!!!!!
Last night, January 24, we were able to test our shooter model to see how far the balls would go. It was successful, perhaps 20ft.
We are beginning to feel the time crunch...
