Compact Ringlifter

Okay so we’ve come to a problem our ring lifter takes up most of our robot space so we have to find a way to make a smaller one that is just as effective as a bulkier one. Please send ideas, Thanks Aspect

There isn’t really many ways people can help you without more information. Are you trying to internally or externally place rings? If you have a ring system that works, what are you trying to add (it might not be better to redesign your rings)? How effective is your current system? How many motors/pneumatics are you planning on using? Some pictures of the robot and some more explaining of what you want would definitely help.

sorry for lack of info, I will try to send picks of the lift and explain

It pulls in rings pretty fast and just takes up a lot of space @9MotorGang

at least you can use one convey band instead of two. And you can drop the roller too.

Check this. 67101C Vex Tipping Point 27 Point Autonomous - YouTube. You may not need roller.

Well we need to keep the roller because it doesn’t pull the rings in very well without it

but as for the conveyor belt that may work

actually we tested that a while ago and it did not work

It depends on how you are holding the alliance goals (I assume that this is for loading alliance goals with rings), but if you tilt the alliance goals back more, you can make the end of the post lower down and farther back, decreasing the length of your conveyor, and making it shorter and slimmer.
