The robot was given to programming, and they tested drive and climber code (which work perfectly) and the pneumatics code.

Daily Dose of Iron – Build Season Days 23 & 24

Hello Team! Congrats on making it through week 4 of build! This means that we are now 2/3 of the way done with the season; but worry not, because our robot is almost completely constructed.

In Construction, we cut and drilled the pieces the mount the chute and then mounted it onto the board.

The encoders were attached to the CIMs and the electronics boards were attached onto the robot. Electronics started to hook up all of the wiring and pneumatics and will finish it tomorrow.

Construction also worked on the 2nd chassis, belting it and starting to attach the side pieces for the climber.

We have decided to switch out the original flap pieces on the chute for something more durable: pistons. Design have come up with mounts for those and for the camera and have started printing them.

Programming has completed almost all of their code and will begin testing as soon as possible.

See you all tomorrow!
