The two ideas I personally find best for the lift are linear elevator lift (like 1103) or a double reverse 4-bar.
double reverse four bar benefits: the 2 arms are on the left and right sides of the bot, leaving space for cubes in the middle, hopefully about 6.
double reverse four bar downsides: with big heavy robots this year, pneumatics will be useful to take the strain off the electric motors (add needed power), but this design (roller intakes) wouldn’t use them.
(The same goes for scissor lifts, I guess )
Elevator lift benefits: I could use a pneumatic needle intake, allowing for more motors elsewhere.
Elevator lift downsides: less payload capacity, with a design similar to 1103’s. (If I moved the towers away from the robot’s center, it would not turn as well.)
-I have already made a reliable elevator lift that can lift enough weight.
Questions : -weight? -how could I use pneumatics for the double reverse four bar?
THANKS FOR THE HELP
