2015 Critical Design Review

FRC 1529 hosted our first design review last Saturday!

A critical design review is where you take your current robot design strategy, present it in front of a group of people, and receive feedback on the efficiency and effectiveness of the design.

Students created a powerpoint for their Recycle Rush Strategy that explained the game and our master plan.

Torey Dunn, Jeremy Roy, and Nick Sethman (not pictured) took charge in leading and presenting Team 1529's design plans

Current students, alumni, mentors, and other community members came from all around Indiana to be hear our strategy and design for this year’s game.



Great turnout for our CDR!

Ultimately we learned that the idea was well thought out and that there wasn’t much to change. The discussion helped narrow our design space and we started the process of CADing out specific aspects of the robot.

Special thanks to Edco for Sponsoring the pizza for the night from our online fundraising platform! The company helped us develop a crowdfunding campaign that could be passed along to local supporters of FRC 1529.

We expect to have basic sketches up of our design in the next blog.
