pic: 1072 almost done



It’s been tough but we’re a bit ahead of schedule and started testing our bot today :wink: Just cleaning up the room in this pic after a long day of work.

The grabber isn’t completely done, so I won’t tell you how it works yet.

05’ bot

yeah, your avatar kinda gave it away :D.

-vivek

I remember that robot :slight_smile:

What exactly are the sliders made out of?

Their re-using an old bot? Is that allowed?

Not this year. Old designs, yes; old robots, no.

Oops I should have changed my icon :mad:

durr

Yeah, what are the sliders made out of?

I have been thinking about this since designing began…

thanks, Vivek

I believe those may be igus linear bearings (anodized aluminum) but I’m not quite sure since this was built the year before I came.

Really?
I never heard of them doing that before.

Yeah, they’re Igus Drylin rails. The tetra grabbing mechanism is still intact but I photoshopped it out for the sake of this pic =P

This bot is from my freshman year…good times

I agree, As long as you take it apart and put it back together, your well within the rules :slight_smile:

hey i remember that robot… from last year. At least it looks very much alike.

You may have to redesign the robot, but COTS are the only thing you can salvage (if they meet current rules). As most of the robot is a fabricated item or collection thereof…

Also a note to design… you may want to shift some more of he weight to the back to make sure it wont become to top heavy and fall over… especially if your going for the ball in autonomous period since the robots in autonomous mode can hit you and knock you over.:ahh:

Rachel!!! you hackorz!

nice 05 picture though… our '05 bot got cannibalized…
poor thing

Good luck this this season…
see you at JETS… ( why DID THEY MOVE IT TO THE WEEKEND BEFORE SHIP DATE… T_T)

Ed - Apparently you left out your sarcasm indicator! :rolleyes:
