It happened again. People seem all post their reveals on the same day. Wouldn’t be surprised if someone else posted a reveal. Cool bot. That extra hood thing is cool since you can slam dunk the balls.
Here is a meme to go along with it:
Why do you think this could be? Do you think it could have something to do with common team meeting days? If you think this is true, maybe try recording which days people post reveals to have some data to back up your claim
nice portable backboard
The claim is probably true based on experience. I’ve noticed this phenomenon too. I think it’s because people are sitting on their reveals but get the motivation to release it when someone else does.
Can confirm, this is definitely part of it.
Nice reveal and robot, cycle times all around look very quick. One question tho. How did you get 272 rpm on the drive? Like what ratio is that?
5:3 on 3.25” omnis = ~272 RPM on 4” wheels, should’ve made that a bit clearer haha!
The portable backboard is really cool! Just wondering, how much does your robot weigh?
great reveal y’all
Sorry for a late question but I was very confused when I looked at the reveal. With your indexer do you have the two top connected so when in-taking it stops at the center because you reverse the top ones and keep the bottom one in-taking the balls?
Yes exactly! The top two are connected / spinning backwards, with the bottom roller still spinning up.
Ok and if you don’t mind me asking what ratio did you use to get the top one to the speed it is at? I have been trying to achieve something similar to you and haven’t even got to build it yet and would like to get a good start.
600 on a 3:1… so 1800 rpm for the top roller.
Ok thanks, that is what I was going to go with in the first place.
