Working with 1455 was an eye opening experience, and fun. We had been helping them out all day, as they had some mechanical, electrical and software issues, and our robot needed minor maintenance, we wanted to help them as much as possible. During their last match on Friday, their entire arm assembly came off the robot (it was welded on, 80/20 to a kit bot frame and 80/20 welded to itself. With almost all the welds broken, a few of our engineers decided angle bracketing them would probably be the best (although we had never really worked with 80/20, we were making it up) and along comes 836 to the rescue, knowing all about 80/20 since they use it. And along with knowledge they brought hardware! (always helpful) together we figured it out and helped put them back together…it was interesting (although some field personnel got angry because it was during awards, but we wanted to help, since we were leaving right after, darn bus) but altogether successful. It was great experience working with 1455 and 836!!
