Day 13 - Monday, January 20, 2020 - Build Day 9

Monday, January 20, 2020

Objectives:

  • Continue bumper assembly
  • Continue shooter prototype
  • Start building curved conveyor prototype

Description:

While we waited for the laser cutter to work, we worked on some electrical wiring on the robot. Once the laser cutter was working, we cut a new shooter backboard template at 55 degrees from the vertical to test. The new backboard proved to shoot very far so we had to back up our shooter to around 18-19ft. Unfortunately, we were having issues with battery connections and were only able to shoot one shot at that distance. Ben continued to work on bumpers; the 2 wooden sides are done, he just needs to connect them.
