2018 Build Season – Week 1

During Week One, we immediately got to work on the Sunday after kickoff. We worked diligently on deciding our main priorities and also developing questions to ask and receive answers to once the Q&A was opened. Once we had a general idea of our robot, we started designing. It was a challenging work week for the modeling team to repurpose one of our old robot models to be able to hold a system that can pick up the POWER CUBES. We also worked on developing many different ideas of climbing on the narrow bar that was provided by FIRST.

The modeling team was hard at work developing the first models of the robot to then be CNC milled, 3D printed, and machined. Mechanical team worked in the woodshop, making the SCALE. With that almost completed, the team took a lunch break for some pizza from our local Casey’s. After a few slices of pizza, glasses of lemonade, and jokes shared, we continued to work on the SCALE and finish our first prototype of the elevator and claw for handling the POWER CUBES. Finally, with a few adjustments to our plans and a list of what needed to be changed; we concluded Week One of the build season.
