I feel confident answering this…

How many orange balls can your robot hold?

  • Two
    Can it pick up the white ball from the field?

    Can it get green balls in the goal?
  • No
    Whats your team #
  • PTD, College
    Are you going 2 worlds?
  • Oh yes
    Can you send pics. 2 me?
  • Absolutely not. Sorry only a handful of people have seen our bot and we intend to keep it that way.

See you at worlds!
-Cody

only two??
what is your gear ratio btw
if you dont mind me asking :wink:
our old bot was 2:1 on 4" omnis (non-holonomic)
we are designing one that will go even FASTER for worlds :slight_smile:
it held three btw :slight_smile:

Look around, there’s plenty.

WHAT??? Only TWO medium-balls!!! I must be insane! Not really. Our catapult (should) hurl medium balls like wildfire along with the others.

As for our base, maahahaha. 3:1, X-holonomic. :smiley: PTD screams when it comes to speed. I will also say that our base is extremely powerful AND fast, we’ve done something on the edge of crazy to obtain this.

We’re not finished but the bot is looking great so far, currently fumbling around with the new RobotC beta.

-Cody

ouch >.<
guess we’ll be tied with the fastest bots out there :slight_smile:
unless someone made a 5:1, 8 motor drive claw bot like you suggested :wink:
ill be looking forward to your beast holo at worlds
(and be documenting every inch of it ;))
btw another question about or bot
how long does it take to “reload”?
thanks
we had a catapult 2 seasons back but we scrapped it
so im just interested with your stats

how many orange balls can your robot hold?

only for “hold”: 12. typically around 8

can it pick up the white ball from the field?

Yes.

can it get green balls?

Yes, and is able to grab more than 10 green balls at one time if they are arranged ideally.
can it get green balls in the goal?

Yes.

You’ll see our team at worlds.

Actually due to a bit of loss in direct forward force your four wheel drive bot should be able to win if it came down to a dead-set race, however I would totally trade a bit of speed for the amazing maneuverability that a holonomic drive delivers.

Now who would be crazy enough to put eight motors on a drive train? That’s just silly. :wink:

Find me at worlds and tell me that I know you by your yellow grinning smiley face avatar on the forums. If I’m in a good mood I’ll not only show you our bot but a few highly detailed CAD renderings of the different assemblies.

I honestly don’t know. Why? Well because the bot is about 95% assembled. I’m waiting to cut some lexan before I get around to programming the [MECHANISM] that would tell me how fast we reload. We’re hoping for under three seconds because unlike other teams, 100% of our [MECHANISM]'s force is directly dedicated to either providing force or relieving force.

I should also note that we can control the force we apply by 128 steppings and that the reload process will be 100% automatic. Hit fire, robot automatically sets up the next shot.

I wish I had time to devote to this robot but I currently am streched almost beyond my limits so the robot must wait. We’ll likely pick up the finishing touches a week before competition in a mad dash like we always do. Believe it or not, none of what I’ve mention is or should be considered our biggest secret. We have a plan that would make team 254A proud but might not work not so I can’t brag about it yet.

Humm… So much I can’t say, all in good time.

See you at worlds!

last question
sorry for all this :stuck_out_tongue:
you have 4 motor holonomic drive 3:1 right?
since that is so insanely fast, and has almost no torque, how light is your robot?
would you mind weighing it?
thx

how many orange balls can your robot hold?
1 at preload can push them over wall

can it pick up the white ball from the field?
yes

can it get green balls?
10-14

can it get green balls in the goal?
no

yes

Avondale (2911) had eight drive motors on their claw bot they took to the worlds last year. It had 3:1 gearing and was not holonomic, so it was probably the fasted robot there. They got into the semifinals, but got stuck on a cube while onehunga (2900) downloaded the firmware but forgot to redownload the programme.

Murdomeek, send me an e-mail and I’ll show you the bot so long as you swear to keep it off the Internet and away from ANY VRC college team.

Would you mind if I sent you an email too? Just very curious to see if what I have in my head is what you built, :smiley: and I Swear I wouldn’t put it up on the internet, and wouldn’t show it to any college VRC teams. (I don’t even know any). Thanks.

  • Jordan

Yeah I can trust you as well. Again, no Internet and no showing college teams.

could you send pictures to my email also.

[email protected]

you can trust me :slight_smile: i learned my lesson from uploading pictures of my own robot
:frowning: :slight_smile: :frowning:

Unfortunately I don’t know you well enough. LegoMindstormsmaniac and murdomeek are on this forum almost daily and I feel comfortable sharing. With that said, I can expect that neither of them will go and copy the design directly.

I’ll post plenty of pictures when I feel that we have reached the point in which a team could not possibly replicate the design even if they wanted. That’ll be about two weeks from now which isn’t that bad.

-Cody

you should wait up till one week :slight_smile:
some teams, including mine, have dedicated team members and have great man power/work power when it is needed
or you can just wait untill the day of and surprise everybody
ohh btw, come to think of it, i dont think that ive replyed to the post yet :wink:
here goes…
