The Deliverator – Wannabee

So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

The last build meeting?

Posted by Deliverator on February 17th, 2006

Today’s build meeting was very productive. We are very close to being finished with the robot. We will be getting up bright and early to finish off the remaining items, prior to the pre-ship event. Our guess is a lot of the other teams will be tweaking their bots all morning, so we don’t expect actual matches to start until after noon. Here is my mental to-do list for what remains to be done:

-Hopper sides
-Ball guide for shooter
-Anti ball-jam mechanism
-Raised lip around ball exit
-Wheel blocking (like on Tyr) plus possible wheel shields?
-Permanent mounting for the shooter assembly

After the build meeting, we headed to school. Ryan worked on programming with the drive team, while a hoard of volunteers from IS, Bellevue and Issaquah assembled the game field for tomorrow. It was quite the undertaking. Thanks to everyone that pitched in and stayed late.

As usual, here are pics from today’s proceedings.
