Solid Works


Today is the last day that we can work on our square-bots before spring break. We were able to finish the figure 8 on our second square-bot and do maintenance to keep our robots from breaking down. When we come back from spring break we will begin working on building the arm for our robot that will be able to pick up cones.


Today we have finished the figure 8 on one of our square-bots and we still need to complete the other one. Since the week is cut short due to spring break, we will only be able to complete the figure 8 on the second square-bot this week.We will also continue to do daily maintenance on both of our square-bots so that they don't fall apart.

Today we will finish setting up the basic movement on the controller of our robot. We will also be starting our automated figure 8. We also need to charge our batteries.

Our second square-bot had only one side of its wheels working so we had to change the motors. When we tried testing the motor, our square-bot started to smoke a little bit. We believe that some of the ports on the cortex have been damaged because now both of motors work, but ports 1 and 10 don't work.

Today all we need to complete our second square-bot is to download the Robot C files onto the cortex. This will allow us to drive our square-bot using a tank style controller. Our goal this week is to complete the figure 8 programming.

Today we finished building our second square-bot. All we need to do to complete it is to download all the basic movement files from Robot C onto the cortex of the square-bot. We will begin to work on downloading these files onto the cortex on Monday.

Today, we finish building our first square bot. Near the end of class we figured out that one of the motor stop working after testing. Now we have to rebuild it.

Mateo isn't here and is very unfortunate we might drop him from the group but in other news. We are building our square bot and its going well. The motor was slow us downing because we didn't notice one of the cables for the battery.

Today, Alex is back but we are running out of time. We are trying to finish our square bot on Solid Works and we have made good progress on it. We are going to try to make it on time as we have our group members working together to get it done.

Today our group is trying to finish the square bot. This time we don't have an issue with finding the files in solid-works after downloading them. Vittorio is now back so we have more man power, but its still going to be tough.
