Y-Drive is life, no cap

Cube shooter is something we worked very hard on. It definitely came in handy when reaching middle tower

That cube shooter tho. And the y-drive… woah.

Lol, jokes aside, really nice bot. I really like the tray + DR4B combo.

Thanks! Though in retrospect the idea behind it was kinda redundant given that we almost never went for the middle tower all season. A 4 bar mini tray would’ve prolly worked better and faster.

I like your mechanical intake release; that is pretty innovative. Who came up with that design?

Our builder, Ty, was the one who came up with it. In theory, it would allow the rollers to grip onto the cube until right about when the stack was vertical, at which point it would be a small vertical drop, so that the bottom cube is rather lined up with the rest of the stack.

I’m a bit confused. What do you all mean by Y Drive and Cube Shooter?

Did you watch the video?

(unless im missing the joke, again)

I did, but I just see a regular mecanum drive and intake. I’m probably blind, so would you be so kind as to gift me sight?
Lol

Did you watch the middle of the video, at around the 2 minute mark. or the end of the video? Or did you just skim through it?

How does the intake folding out when there is a stack work?

We line up the cube to right about the center of rotation, at which point we can start stacking. As the tray tilts, the rollers are gripping then bottom cube, but at the end of its arc, the rollers splay out to easily drop the cubes and come back out. That way we can ensure that there is just a small vertical drop and that the bottom cube won’t be too far misaligned from the rest of the stack if we were to not do that.
