The Innovators are working hard to fit the parts together. Unfortunately, the groups did not always make sure their parts would all integrate together. The CAD’ed parts are being reworked and the parts are deconflicted to make things work together. Also, adjustments are being made to help prevent moving parts (such as belts) from rubbing against rivets, thus wearing out to quickly.
Additionally, the team is building a practice robot along with the competition robot. A practice robot allows the programming group to test the code against a working robot that is designed the same as the competition robot. It also allows the drive team to practice with a robot that will react similar to their competition robot.
