Tuesday 4.17

Since last week we finished the programming for the figure 8, we will start adding the claw part to our robot. The next challenge is to program the arm to the controller to pick up a tetrahedron and place it on rack for multiple points. The hard part of placing the arm is we need to find the right weight distribution on our robot because the long arm of the claw may tip it over.

Friday 4.23

 We finished our SolidWorks and did our figure 8 this week! The SolidWorks blog is scheduled to go up tonight with the views. It was a very difficult week, but probably our most productive. In the coming week, we should be working on our tetrahedron. See you then.

Monday 4.9

Today we're going to be split for a long while. Gunther is going to continue on the SolidWorks while I begin the coding on the automatic figure-8. Both are things we haven't done before, so it'll be interesting to try and learn before Friday.

Thursday 4.5

This week we completed the programming on our robot. We drove our robot to Martin and he verified that we had the controls correct. This was a huge step in getting where we need to be. Also, Gunther started the SolidWorks drawing and is already done with the chassis and wheels. This was a very productive week.

Tuesday 4.3

Today we're going to be starting our SolidWorks assemblies. We had periodic absences, and have to make up driving our robot towards Mr. Martin. Although a crutch, we'll be moving to make up lost time and go forward with our production.

Thursday 3.22

Today we're turning in our Virtual Worlds, with the goal of reaching 35 badges. Gunther is absent, so I'll be looking to finish as many as possible. The robot is finished, but I don't think the coding is.
