Reflections For This Meeting: 

CAD makes really cool pictures - hope they work in real life too!

This was a long and big meeting - and both Gavin and Alejandro wrote part of today's engineering log.

Today we have GOT to get the new hand design finalized, and the hand built. Plus, we're going to try to figure out the prototype board's digital stuff so we can use limit switches from there.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

The best part was getting all the FLL kids excited about FIRST Tech Challenge!!!

Our entire team worked very hard to organize, set up and run the first ever Granite Bay FLL Tournament. We worked hard and had a great time -and all of the FLL teams and family/friends had a great time too.

We introduced a lot of young FLL members to FTC today - which was a blast too. Read more »

Reflections For This Meeting: 

We went through several different versions of the wheel base, and assembled the arm.

 

Today we worked on rebuilding the robot's wheel base, and installing the first version of the arm.  We changed the wheel from all four on each side being fixed, to it being two sets on each side with suspension so the wheels had a freer range of movement, which will be helpful in going over the mountain.  We continued working on the arm, and installed two motors do drive both directions of movement.  We needed a working robot for the Auburn Community Festival the next day, so we built a quick "pincher" to put on the end of the arm.
