For those people who thought of internal stacking the cubes just like in the zone, what mechanisms have you thought of to make sure that the stack wouldn’t fall as the robot is moving around? My initial design was to make some sort of vertical bars that would flip open (using rubber bands) to a higher height when the match starts and use them to make sure that the stack wouldn’t fall. I thought of using rubber bands because there’s no motor left… I did realize that this design has many flaws. What are your thoughts?
This “magazine” style cube storage
Though still a concept righ now I can see a solid amount of teams doing this
I think it’s worth considering that once a new cube is aligned on a stack, it might not really need to be adjusted because it’s already in line with the other cubes.
