Arm Prototypes – Finalizing the Design

FRC 1529 has been BUSY this past week!

A lot of progress has been made on the testing the “palindrome” design. On Saturday students built a quick prototype that they were able to test on sawhorses to determine ball intake and compare compression ratios.

The team actually ran motors to the prototype and tested the shooting capabilities for the design. A few changes were identified that the team plans to make in their CAD models for the next meeting.
