The Dr4bar, Double Reverse 4 Bar

There’s a difference between an DR4B and just a 4 bar…

dr4bs might work out. we need to test in my opinion

Hm. they might be semi-viable for moving your tray up. My 1st initial thought was a dr4b traybot (but a little more optimized), but now I’m thinking of ways to not use a dr4b, or have an elevator system. if you had a wide area of intaking, then had an elevator, you could, theoretically, use it. It’s not the brightest design, but hey, it’s one ig.

What the heck is ball indexing?

Ball indexing is where the robot sorts the colors.

I think I’m going to close this soon, and do another one at the end of this season to see if opinions or designs have greatly changed.
