It’s completely serious, Lewie is just great at building
It’s a team effort. You’d be surprised what we can get done when everybody shows up to practice
Thank you! And also it was just a couple C-channels and some standoffs. We love trying out new designs early in the season just to get a feel for things. Works well for us
Great team effort! Do you guys have a pulley mechanism on your robot? On the original picture it seems like there’s one (for lifting?).
how many people are on your team?
I actually want to see them make a tank to x drive. IF you try to do this, and you don’t have to, maybe this video will help?
We have a pulley mechanism for lifting cubes. Sorry if it’s hard to see. Our lift is in progress and should be completed during our next practice. (our weekly practice just ended a few minutes ago)
We have 14 members on our 4 high school teams and around 8 on our two middle school teams
I would just like to point out you made this thread an hour ago and it already has 30 replies and almost 250 views. Also, did you finish the X-drive?
Practice ended at 12:30 PST :P, we just need to mount it on next week and it should be ready to go!
These are the teams that do very well at world’s each year
I’m looking forward to see how well this does in programming skills, I hear Lewie is a great programmer!
I can confirm. Lewie is one of the best programmers I have ever seen.
I can confirm lewie is the best programmer
Lewie once wrote us a program to get our robot grills, it worked so good that I never saw that robot again. 10/10.
What is this even from?
Cool. We actually tried a pulley mechanism for a winch and drum for pulling down our catapult. The pulley had a mechanical advantage of 1:4 but it never actually worked. We though it was due to friction in our pulley and our transmission. Do you have any tips for creating a pulley mechanism?
Lewie is definitely the best programmer I know.
This is a joke thread, and the images are of past robots (his and others). Thus, the thread is no depiction of his build speed.
