First Team 971

All,

Here’s a couple of pictures to show you what we are up to this year. I’m really proud of 971 CAD efforts this year. The kids were designing with Solid Works using smart dimensions, mates , motion studies and FEM.

Blows me away how fast these kids can learn when they are having fun.

There’s never enough whiteboard space, is there? :wink:

Thanks for posting.
+1 for safety glasses and respirators

Beautiful design.

May have a distant non-machine shop cousin out east.

Sleek looking mechanism! It looks like a ton of thought was put into the overall concept and detailed design, will make for a beautiful finished robot. Thanks for sharing it with us.
