This year we have started using SolidWorks to design our robot (previously only complex parts of the robot were designed). Our 3D designer has had a lot of work as the robot isn’t a set plan, but a constantly evolving chunk of metal.
Not everything is shown on this CAD drawing, but it is a helpful representation of what the robot’s skeleton is, and lets us plan things accordingly.
Anyways, we are almost done a long week of building. We have met every day of the week after school for two to five hours, and tomorrow we will meet for seven hours! I’m sure that all this time we’ve spent will be well worth it though, as the robot is looking good, and very robust.
