Post video of your first HAB3 climb attempt


#119

Actually our second attempt, nobody got video of the first one, we didn’t expect it to go right up I guess


#120

Love the 1619-esk arm!


#121

Here are our first climbs.


#122

The fact that this looks like your bot is, “Blasting off,” is absolutely perfect. Awesome job!


#123

This is my favorite of all the HAB level 3 climbs I’ve seen so far.


#124

get it? :wink:


#125

that’s a plane and simple way to do it.


#126

Not mine, likely not a first, but here’s a link to 2992’s HAB3 climb:

#129

But the save before it tipped is the main concern


#130

Not our first attempt, but a pretty rough one.


#131

Our second attempt, still needing a lot of drivers practice.


#132

I really like all of these manipulator elevator + stilt designs that a lot of teams have converged on, they work really well!


#134

Is your team still planning on using the four bar mechanism?


#135

We are still planning to use a four bar, but have no footage of it working yet because we are so far behind schedule with our build this year.


#136

Not our first successful climb but it’s definitely the most polished. Looking forward to climbing week 2!

How heavy are these cylinders? We’re looking to add something like this between events and have ~20lb to spare.


#138

They look a lot like the same ones we use. So ~5 Lbs each. Not exactly the best power to weight ratio…but they do work.


#139

I saw somewhere they’re using 2" bore 24" stroke cylinders – just to confirm, that’s what you’re using as well? Because I imported the STEP into CAD and made the material stainless steel, and got ~30lbs (was really hoping that wasn’t right).


#140

We are indeed using 24" stroke, 2in bore Stainless Steel Bimba Cylinders.
