Our teaser has officially been uploaded to YouTube, and our robot is about 2 weeks beyond the making of this video. This video was created a while ago, then tampered yesterday. Feel free to ask any questions :
//Edit: These pictures don’t prove our final robot, it has changed. Expect us to maybe have a different type of robot, and possibly a different drivetrain due to the fact that our first competition is in a long while. We may or may have not done another rebuild :).
From what I can see, you have the following:
6 motor H drive - 4 (speed?) motors on forward w/ 4 inch omni wheels, 2 (speed??) motors on sideways w/ mini omnis. Amazing use of space.
Slipgear catapult at a 9:35 ratio ran by 6 (torque? Speed gives a nearly 1:3 ratio which is inefficient for this many gears) motors.
This leaves the hanging mechanism. How did you do that on the finished product? Just got lucky with the slipgear ratio? (I hope so) If you did, where will the last 2 motors/pneumatics go?
TI… 89 Titanium? It’s hard to tell from the color of the plate. That’s a beast calculator though. I love mine.
Anyway, this is a very effective use of motors it seems. Have you tested it yet?
Since this is a teaser, the majority of the questions can’t be answered yet. But here are some that can be answered:
The golden plate is a 3D printed plate that is over a year old, and its says “1815 Delta” It’s hard to see the letters because the iPhone 5’s horrible camera (Note: The reveal will be between 1080p and 4k).
After doing research and rebuilding our robot multiple times, we have went to a conclusion to take an idea from the Ri3d and improve upon them.
The main reason why we chose an H-Drive will be shown during the reveal. Let me just tell you, it moves well!
Another thing to keep in note of: The pictures are a bit outdated, so expect some changes too.
Actually, if I can make it possible, I will be livestreaming our competition that will be going on, so you can truly see how good we are :).
By the way, we aren’t just the only team in 1815, there is a total of SEVEN teams. Some teams that may or may not be better than us now .
HEADS UP: The reveal is in 10 days!
We have made a MAJOR change to our robot in which our robot is better than it was last time, and we are putting EXTREME efforts into making the reveal worth-watching
