We took inspiration from 448x’s ri3d and 1961z’s reveal videos and decided to make a bot similar in style, but we hit a roadblock with the tray. We decided to add a third flip-out tray to be able to stack 9 cubes, but the issue is that we could never get the tray to flip out after the match started. It always gets stuck on the rollers that flip out as well. Does anyone know possible solutions for this issue? I’ve been stuck on this problem for 2 days and the only fix i can see is only to have 2 flip-outs and then adding a passive extender on the second tray, but I have no idea on how to do it on L-Channels.
We used to have this issue previously (1961Z), so we swapped over to a linear segment for our third tray. However, this can be solved by having the third tray sit on top of the rollers rather than being between the two. Our robot had enough space to fit that configuration, but we felt a lighter linear tray would be better.
Edit: I found a video that better describes what I am talking about.
Very sorry abt this year… the members were so busy with their school work that they had problem finding time to do a proper reveal.
And that’s the usual issue with reveals… after a Long delay, you start to wonder if there is still any values in doing it (especially when there are many other reveals that were released).
I will check with my students if they are still doing any reveals…
