Reflections For This Meeting: 

We came up with some good ideas for the wrist and hand, and built a mount to use three servos so we have multi directional rotation to get the scoring pieces from the despenser.  I learned more about using the PTC program while building the chasis piece, and next up is learning how to manipulate sheet metal.

I started the meeting with working on CAD, and finished building the chassis piece.  I started with just a bar, then added the four wheels, with gears connecting each.  I made the two end pieces able to rotate seperately, but still be powered by the gears.

 

 

Karl worked on the mounting bracket for the servos, and worked on building the chasis piece and worked on detailing the right side of the chassis, and installed a spring system on the front wheels.

 

 

Gavin worked on building the hand and figuring out how to get the scoring pieces out of the dispenser. The main part of the hand is going to be a holder for the scoring bars, along with a sensor for detecting the magnetic bar.

 

  

 

Chris made brackets that mount servos at 90 degree angle on a duel servo custom mount.
