…And here’s the robot, finished (except for a hard-stop at the top of our elevator). See you at competition!

Things we learned making this (among others):

  1. A knee mill is a lovely machine.
  2. Igus linear bearings are nice.
  3. 3M VHB tape is incredible.

After two years of tormenting the hands of our poor drive team as they move the robot on and off the field, we have added handles to this year’s robot. They are so convenient that I do not think I will ever design a robot without them again.
