Week Five Update

February 9, 2015 in Slideshow by Philip Wallis

After CAD being finalized last week, the sheet metal came in. Texas Torque began building and assembling the competition robot. All members of Texas Torque are hard at work in order to get the robot ready for bag and tag this next week.

The metals that were received have been powder coated for use on the competition robot.  Furthermore, any parts that could be made in-house (such as our bearing blocks and shafts) starting getting processed on our lathe and mill.

On the topic of milling, we also began milling out our custom driver station layout. Lastly, the chairman’s group has finished recording chairman’s video.
