Friday - Week 11

Unfortunately this week we did not complete the tractor pull challenge. With limited supplies being shared among all the teams, we ran out of time and supplies. After certification testing we hope to reclaim all of our part (including our small but strong wheels) and continue.

Monday - Week 11

This week we hope to finish up the build of our Weight Pulling Robot so we can start testing it. We have two parts that we are combining today or tomorrow to almost finalize the build. We feel like this build is extremely efficient and is perfect for this challenge. The following pictures are the two parts that we have built thus far.

Nearing the end of our run, our super torque machine is practically complete. We have met our goals for this week and plan to take part in the tractor pull next week. Wish us Luck!

Wednesday- Week 10

We have already succeeded in taking apart the robot we build fro the racket ball challenge. We have split up the group into different tasks so we are able to succeed in finishing the weight pulling challenge. We did make a gearing mistake and have fixed it since then.

Monday - Week 10

This we are continuing to work on our new build for the weight pull challenge. There is a two-part design in mind and we hope we can pull it off without any problems. We also hope we can start working on the Solidworks portion of this design but we are waiting till we have more assurance on our design before we commit to one on Solidworks. We are using the small wheels for this challenge rather than the larger ones due to friction.

Wednesday - Week 9

 Being as efficient as possible this week,we have been able to begin our new and improved robot for the next challenge: weight pull. Bringing in as much torque as possible our compound gearing is sure to get the job done. We all look forward to putting our design to the test.
