Re: Best intake designs over the Years

I have to give a hat tip to FRC16's intake in 2008, floppy intake was best intake.

Re: Best intake designs over the Years

I think some of the most effective intakes and mechanisms can be found in VRC. 1538's 2013 and 2014 intakes were heavily inspired by VEX teams.

Not to steal any of your thunder but 2200 also independently developed a intake of the same concept but even simpler. Instead of using a linear spring mechanism they just used a bent piece of polycarb that would flex while intaking a gear.

Re: Best intake designs over the Years

I personally like 1717's intake from 2012, very efficient from matches I've watched. I'm gonna guess it takes from past years games, regardless it's really smooth.

Re: Best intake designs over the Years

I think it's really easy to get caught up in the high level robots, that seed high, win events, but 865 from 2015 came out with what would later be the Cheesy Poof intake that year in week one. In a year where a lot of robots struggled with handling totes, this robot made it look like cake, and there were definitely inspirations drawn from it later in the season by other teams.

Re: Best intake designs over the Years

340's 2017 intake was really solid, using both pinching and rolling allowed it to be very "touch it, own it." 148's 2017 intake (original model) was also really cool because it could get gears and fuel in the same place.

Along similar lines, 1678s 2014 intake(s)

I saw a few versions of that architecture last year for gears, and this year for boxes that is extremely effective.
I'm going to toot my own horn and note that that 2011 design was based on team 100's design from 2007 - I went to a 1678 workshop and they said they literally traced it for their first prototype on their 2011 robot.

Re: Best intake designs over the Years

I would have to say 1323's from this year. So good that 1678, 1671, 254, and 973 all copied it. Able to quickly grab cubes without kicking them away, open wide for intaking, and even pick up any orientation of cubes. One of the best features is able to actuate open to precisely drop the cube onto the scale. Great intake!
