[FTC]: Cascade Lift Design

After having completed our first qualifying competition, our team realized that an arm was not a great ball-scoring mechanism. We saw many cascade, or elevator, type lifts and thought that seems to be the route to go. Has anyone built a lift like this? If so, what are some tips or guidelines? Have you been satisfied with a lift?
I hope you’re all having a fun season so far!
Thank you.

Check this out it might help you with how they work and how to rig it.


We based ours on the Ri3D design, but 3-D printed the spacers. I will take some pictures next weekend and will try to post a link to them.
