Impressive and formidable looking!! Good luck…and happy four more days for improvement!
Are those really zip ties on your wheels? :ahh:
yep they are, but we’re not sure if they’re legal or not. We’ve asked numerous times about the legality of it but no one has answered us
I’d like it if someone could first q + a that, since our MENTOR (glances at mr park) doesn’t know the password…
that’s one good looking robot
Nice job - can I have it? :c)
zipties on your wheels are ok. lots of teams use them to allow skid steering - the rule is you cant damage the carpet or playfield. zipties are nylon- not a problem.
Great idea with the pneumatic lift on the arm at the base. We didn’t think of that. (putting that on the shelf of good ideas)
Other than that we have a similar design.
How are you controlling the movement of the arms? Joystick? Pots? Switches?
Looks like it should be a fun year to walk thru the pits
Luck to all, you can sleep this coming weekend
The arm is controlled by many controls:
- Joysticks (inversed y-axes) for the elbow and wrist
- Toggle-programmed joystick switches (triggers and thumb switches) for the claw and base cylinder
- POV hat for the scissor lift
You can say that again!
The arms are on two joysticks, one for the elbow and one for the wrist. On the elbow joystick I can control the claw, and the base pneumatic cyclinder. And also the pneumatic cyclinder isn’t the only device that pulls the robot off the ground, we have a scissor lift under the arm.
Maybe… we still have time to build something fancy like #25’s for our controls!!
