Week 3 Day 4- Vex Pro Drive and Prototyping
Another big work day for the discobots. We have changed some dimensions on the VEXpro drive train so that it will fit the collection system design. We prototyped a ramp collection design and found that a wheel shooting mechanism is powerful enough to launch frisbees to a vertical position and up a ramp.
Electrical: Boards are nearing completion and are ready to mount onto our drive train
CAD: A version 2 of the shooter is under development and nearing completion. These plates should be ready to intercept TMS on their manufacturing but if not will be ready to be manufactured. We also worked on the structural side plates for the robot support. We are still struggling to mate the ramp, chute, and launcher subsystems together
Hanging: Progress was made on a hanging mechanism
