FTC Design Process
At the last few meetings, the teams have begun designing their FTC robots. These bots must be capable of picking up small balls (golf ball and baseball sized) and throwing them into tubes of varying height. Team A began by brainstorming ideas on the whiteboard:
Next, we began sketching the possible designs. We are considering implementing a folding conveyor belt into our bot, so we did some math to figure out how long the pieces of the arm would have to be.
Meanwhile, Team B is formulating their design:
Next up will be converting these rough sketches into technical drawings that we can use to define the details of our bots.
