FRC973 2009 and on robot CAD files
A CAD model of our 2009 Robot.
I’m posting this along with a few other models, due to transferring our CAD files to a new system we lost some parts, and some things we just never finished during season. Still a solid representation of our robot though.
I am posting these in the order they were designed and made, all 5 of these were made and have run. Only the unnamed 2011 prototype didn’t compete in an event.
I will eventually add our pre 2009 prototype, King Krab, but since that is still in inventor I need to get someone to convert it to a .stp for me. If anyone is will, please let me know.
2009 Robot - Raptor
-This is really the first robot in the modern era of 973. A mahcine we really love.
2010 Prototype - Black Knight
-Although RAPTOR had a decent west coast drive, it was a setup designed to be made in house that we ended up outsourcing, and utilized a lot of COTS components. This was our first fabricated revision of a more refined west coast drive (although we had a similar version done pre 2009 in SW).
2010 Robot - theBOSS
-This was a rough year for us, we were understaffed on design and it showed. The intake and full width kicker was a last minute addition. The 4 CIM hanging worked, but with our kicker/intake issues was never tested enough to feel comfortable in a match (it had a LOT of torque). we probably hung 20 or so times on the practice fields.
-Minor rework allowed a PTO and a 10wd while retaining common parts.
2011 Prototype - Unnammed.
-Very similar in functionality to Black Knight, but we eliminated welding. We designed with an intake to test more things. Worked out well for us.
-We were unhappy with the bumper system on this (as with most previous robots).
2011 Robot - TITAN
-I’ll add notes later, but with regards to the drive it was identical in most ways to the prototype. The nonwelded base worked great for us.
-I named my new dog TITAN after this robot, lets just say my girlfriend lost a bet about us winning champs.
