SolidWorks 2.0...With a Claw
Today, Brandon is AP testing. We have accomplished most of our goals, and got the tetrahedron challenge done. This week, we are still waiting to use the tetrahedron base, but we have made do with an upside down chair. We also need to upload the SolidWorks 'profiles'.

Sit and Wait
Week 10We haven't made much progress on the robot this class. We are done building, but we need to put the pyramid of straws on to the tower of polls. We not only need to get the straws to make the pyramid, but its also being used so we must wait. We're finishing up on Solidworks, checking other blogs and comparing our bots. While we wait we are testing the robot as in getting use to the "tank controls"

Moving The CLAW
WEEK 9Wednesday I added the fingers to the claw and replaced a bent part. I also fixed the wheel that fell off. We are starting to find the program that will allow the claw to move, along with the robot. We also worked on and finished the base of claw bot, and now we need to make the claw to attach it. We have the code to allow us to control the claw, and after we do the 60 second challenge, we can start the autonomous challenge, which we also have the base for.

WEEK 9Today we made the most progress we have in a while. We are almost done with our claw all we have to do is add the 'finger'. The Solidworks it's pretty much half way done, Brandon just needs to mirror it and add the battery. Next class hopefully we can start testing our claw and start putting in our commands.

Starting Claw Officially
WEEK 8We have officially started to make the claw. I hope it doesn't take as long as the figure 8 did. This week we are only in class one day, so we only have one entry. We figured out how to make the claw and attach the motor.

WEEK 7Our blogs have no consistent theme or style, so this weekend I want to work on formatting our blog. We accomplished speeding up our robot, and successfully completed the figure 8. We have fixed 3 out of 4 of the long axles. I'm almost done rebuilding the Solidworks robot, so when the claw is done, all we have to do is add it on top. Finally, we moved the battery to the front of our bot, and flipped the cortex around, leaving more space in the back for the claws base. We also added the two beams for the claw.
