With great pride, I’d like to share the CAD for Celt-X’s Einstein Finalist 2019 Robot “Buzz”.
This year was our most CNC intensive robot yet, with a half dozen custom mechanisms produced on our new router and laser cutter, including:
A combination pass-through intake and climbing arm:
A routered-lexan “box” which carried cargo and panels up the elevator and also carried a spring-loaded, laser-cut, HDPE hatch mechanism below:
A laser cut delrin “kicker” which pushed cargo out of the box:
A two-way (goes up and down through the bottom), two-stage elevator, who’s design was heavily borrowed from team 319’s design, so hats off to them.
And custom two-stage 3 Neo* (*only 2 Neos installed) ball-shifting drivetrain gearboxes with a 3D printed first stage:
You can find Solidworks files for the whole robot (and previous year robots) at our GrabCAD partner space here: https://workbench.grabcad.com/workbench/projects/gcX8aHvArM7rSATL1ufR_TEycSc5gmg9I098dgOlp-7M4C#/space/gcSiKzBrTual35TxoJocXPFyZfEGxrVAFOpoG5Ep8LxPYb

BONUS ROBOT CAD!!!
Over the summer a smaller group of students produced a new “9406” robot named “Woodie” in honour of Dr. Flowers. Woodie was a lightning fast, 20" narrow, level-1 hatch and cargo robot with a level-3 climb that could share the platform with other robots.
cx19-94-robot4.STEP (63.5 MB)
Woodie was built and tested, but sadly never fielded as there wasn’t enough space at Ruckus for us to bring two robots. Nevertheless, the project taught us a lot about what works and what doesn’t, and I’m ridiculously proud of the students who learned how to design and manufacture custom mechanisms in only a few short months.
Like this flipped 3-Neo single speed gearbox (which, btw, is entirely too much drivetrain power to put on an 80 lb robot )
A special thank you and shout out to all of our team members who worked on the 2019 CAD, including:
