Hey Code Red,
Today was the end of week 2 and the team has made great progress so far.
Assembly and machining were able to complete the frame today and gearboxes and chains should be added on Tuesday when we come back to build.
Acquisition worked on testing different wheel compressions and roller placement.
Indexer has finished their CAD and is now working with Acquisition and Shooter to figure out where they will be mounting.
Shooting found the two angles they need to set the shooter to in order to shoot from the triangle and further back.
Climber is currently working on fitting the winch in the final assembly, working out problems with the lift CAD and figuring out mechanical detachment options for their hooks. They were able to finish the latch design and their current system is 11lbs not counting the lift mount and winch mount.
None of what we do would be possible without generous support from sponsors.
