Week 10 3/31/17
We have finally completed our most recent challenge, the tetrahedron challenge. We now have to do the same thing but autonomously. Doing things autonomously have always been harder, but the challenge now only involves using one tetrahedron instead of two. we hope to complete this challenge by next week
Week 9 3/24/17
We finished the claw and it seems to be working. In order to complete the challenge we have to now put together a pyramid made out of straws for the claw to pick up and place on something. On solid works building the robot has been a bit of a challenge. Mating wasn't working at first so we were putting the parts close to each other but not really connecting them. We fixed the robot on solidworks after figuring out how to mate the right way, now we are on track
Week 9 3/20/17
This week we got far in solid works,at first had difficultly but we work together to be able to put the first parts together.Soon we will start to get the parts for the claw in solid works.Our vex robot already has the claw almost finish,just have to installed it with the batteries and cortex with the controller.
