Week Three Update

January 24, 2015 in Slideshow by Philip Wallis

Texas Torque’s hard working mechanical team finalized the prototypes, and the CAD team sketched up preliminary designs for this year’s robot. We are hoping to see final revisions by the end of week four, and from there start building this season’s official robot.

The Slide modules are on track to be completed soon. The Slide modules are positioned to strafe left and right. Larger exterior-mounted omniwheels drive the robot’s forward, backward, and turning motions.

The gearboxes were assembled and the electronics were mounted on MDF board as a temporary solution for driving.

New parts from Vex and spare parts from FRC team 1429 Kaos arrived, and will soon be put to good use.
