Ri3D team looking for members – Team Capital (formerly FIRST Capital Ri3D)

Hi all! Team Capital is looking to expand our team with new members from around the FIRST world. We are looking for high performing FRC mentors and alumni who want to give Robot in 3 Days a try. Last year, we had team members who were either mentors or alumni of 225, 234, 1747, 1807, 2481, 2590, 3260, and 3504.

We had over 175,000 views across all platforms last year, one of the highest viewed Ri3D teams for 2019. We will be broadcasting again with our awesome partner FIRST Updates Now.

Reveal from Last Year:

Our biggest needs are in prototyping, mechanical fabrication and video editing, but we will entertain all interest. There is no maximum team size.

Changes from last year:

  • FIRST Capital Ri3D is now Team Capital. Everyone called us Team Capital last year, so we’re matching what everyone calls us anyway
  • Enhanced strategic design content to better explain why we take our chosen path
  • Expanded team with even more all-star FIRST talent

We again expect to build a Ri3D robot that is capable of winning a District Championship and being at a minimum a 2nd pick in a division at Worlds. We believe we exceeded this goal last year, building a robot that was very similar in capabilities to 222 (#4 best robot at FMA district championships and #6 overall pick and Finalist in their division at Worlds). Our team is focused around inspiring mid-range FRC teams to take their build to the next level and break into the top tier by building the best robot the team is physically capable of building in the 3-day time constraint.
