Week Four​

Mymuna Begum

After an abundance of angle grinding, filing and arguments over who had to use the hand-crank drill, the chassis was finally completed. The team is now manufacturing the finalized version of the gear intake system, while the indexer continues to be prototyped on the side. Unlike last year, the team has not yet faced any major mechanical issues in the start of our fourth week of build season. Hopefully, our progress isn't halted by any problems in the weeks to come.

Team 334 Progress

Mymuna Begum

We have been hard at work, with a very productive build season so far. We have completed the climbing mechanism and developed a working chassis. Now all that is left is the intake mechanism, gear placement, and shooting mechanism to complete the robot. We plan on meeting our goal of finishing a week in advance. The completion of our robot is just over the horizon, and the FIRST competition not very far behind.

Mid-season Madness

Mymuna Begum

It’s officially the third week of build season and the team is scrambling to complete the CAD of the robot. Though the prototyping of the rope climbing mechanism and indexer is still underway, the team is now manufacturing this year's official chassis. With all the hectic building occurring in the lab, the programmers took to the halls with a practice robot to test their autonomous code which worked as intended. All in all, it was a day well spent for all of us!

Finalizing Designs and Prototypes

Nick Svan

It’s halfway into week two and we’ve now split up into different groups to work on separate modules of the robot. The shooter prototypes have been tested and the team is working on finalizing the design. The mentors are also still helping the new members in refining their CAD skills.
