1200C Technical Breakdown Robot Reveal

This is Technical Breakdowns Robot Reveal.

Our Robot consists of three major components: The Chassis, Lift, and Intake. All were built dependently for accuracy.

Chassis:
Our Chassis consists of 4 393 Motors (geared internally for Torque) chained at a 1:1 ratio.
We use mechanum wheels for our drive train which allow us to maneuver easily around goals.

Lift:
We have a 2 1/2 stage lift. The lift is run by 6-269 motors at a 3:1 ratio.
Our half stage is due to an extra 4 inches we need which proved unnecessary to add a full two more slides to give us 16 more inches.

Intake:
Our intake is 8 inches wide and 6.5 inches long. The front of the intake is open to allow us to drive directly into a stack of two objects without having to lift over them.
We have a pneumatic clamp which uses two pneumatics to pull the objects back inside the intake to prevent them falling out the open front.
Our intake allows us to hold approximately 4 to 5 objects.

Feel free to ask any questions or specs that we may have missed on our bot.

Re: 1200C Technical Breakdown Robot Reveal

We have added a close up video of our intake on our facebook page which is the link on the first post. Watching it on full screen is the best view.

Our intake has four modified standoffs to line up objects very quickly for our intake.

For those on Chatango that is Chuck Norris

Hey Fondy,
Thank you for your help this year, we were great partners at Xavier and the World Warm-up. I hope we get to see you next year and we will be sure to get you into the SMC competition. We are retiring 1200C Technical Breakdown but you will see us around on another team like we told you at the warm-up. Thanks for all your help this year because we think that without you there is a pretty good chance that we wouldn't have made it to worlds this year, let alone receive the Divisional Excellence Award. Good luck in VEX Sack Attack and feel free to contact us. bgambsky, X-Factor, and 13Arobot13 are the three members on the forum on this team moving on.

Thanks again
