Team 40 is bringing their 1/3 scale Aim High field to the IRI for demos.
They have VEX kit robots designed to play the game, and any other
teams that want to build a robot to play “Mini Aim High” can come and
Their robots will be there for students (and adluts) to play.
If enough teams build a VEX robot, there might be time for some fun challenge matches.
Specifics for you to use when building a VEX robot to play
(note to engineers - these are not exactly 1/3 scale).
**Playing Field **
Size - 8’8" x 18’
Ramp - 44" wide, 16" deep (on top) and 8-1/2" high
Upper Goal - 34" to center of goal.
Upper Goal - 10" diameter.
No green light for tracking.
There are lower goals also.
15" x 15" x 20" high
Balls - 2.3" diameter “stress relievers”
The robot sizes are designed to work well with VEX kits
Use any motors or parts you want
Plan to build a robot and join in.
Thanks to Team 40 for bringing their fiield
(you may have seen it in Atlanta)
We’re all very excited to be bringing along our Mini-FRC field and the robots. We’ve made some especially for IRI, so it should be a blast. Check out the link in my sig for a video about our little creation.
Indeed, the balls don’t weigh very much at all. If you were to design a shooter to shoot racquetballs or tennis balls, it would probably launch our balls to the moon. If you’re wondering, the balls are made of a material similar to that of the full sized competition balls.
