2018 Build Season – Week 4

2018 Build Season – Week 4

During Week Four of build season, the work on the test bot is rapidly getting close to a close with only minor technical difficulties. Modeling team has been focusing on getting prints of each part of the robot to the mechanical team for machining. Windchill’s recent issues have set us back a tiny bit, but the team continues to overcome this obstacle with minimal frustration. Many parts on the test robot have had to be fixed or changed due to dimensions, which mechanical team has been busying themselves with as well as the production of new parts and better parts for the competition robot.

Programmers got the test robot driving, systems working, and their codes adapted to fit with the many different elements of the robot. Electrical team finished wiring the test robot and now work quickly to begin wiring the competition robot with a better layout.
