Day 21: Intake

We finished the wooden intake today. It has a few geometry errors that we need to fix before going into production on the real one. We also learned how to stretch 1" ID surgical tubing over 1.25" OD aluminum tubing. The trick is to use both soapy water and a lot of high pressure air plus some brute force.
The drive train CAD is nearing completion, we are working on smaller details like the battery box and adding a few more cross members for strength.



Our first run of production sheet metal should go to the Solarcraft late next week for production. There is going to be a time crunch the last week of the season to get everything assembled before we wrap up the competition robot.

We still have 92 more days before the FRC World Finals are played that's a whole lot of time to iterate.
