What about this one, EJ?

Now that my fellow mentors are done goofing around, here’s some parts that make up the majority of our robot.


Heres a picture. But don’t ask me what it is. I’m just the programmer.


Looks similar to something I’ve seen before. Nice work. :slight_smile:

out of curiosity did you try to buff/scotch brite these black pieces before they went to anodizing?

Yeah, we used some fine grit sandpaper to smooth out some surface imperfections in all the anodized parts.

In retrospect, it probably would have been better to deal with the imperfections and get a mostly uniform finish with the anodization, rather than the scratching on the parts.

It still looks pretty sweet, especially without the reflection of the camera flash.

I’ve talked it over with a few people, and it’s time for you to go home and get some sleep.



Is EJ Sabathia related to C.C. Sabathia of the Cleveland Indians? I know C.C.'s from California.

Nice work, by the way.

Yes we are related, first cousins to be exact.

Yeah… I’d like to, but I’ve got freaking 12 hours in travel coming up before shipdate that I’ve gotta do. We’ll see if I can fit in some sleep on Tuesday or something. Take it easy, dude.


By the way… which few people did you talk it over with? :stuck_out_tongue:

There’s no time for sleep. We’ve got robots to build!!

(We did happen to take a two hour nap break at around 5:30 AM today)
