Day 14: Two weeks down four to go

Our current plan is to build a (mostly) functional prototype robot before we send off parts to the laser cutter. So many of the pieces have a lot of features jammed into them that we will need to work with them physically before we are confident enough to have them laser cut.

The VEXpro drive train is now riveted with 1/4" steel rivets. We want to be extra sure our chassis won't come apart. Here are a lot of pictures of our modifications to the chassis. We now have a full 15.5 inches between the wheel wells because we moved to a single loop of chain and the versawheels. We will be mounting CIMs #5 and #6 in the future.

The other systems are coming along, although a bit slowly. We're hoping to have something to mount on top of this in the near future.
