Adrienne Emerson - This Is How I Work    This week were featuring Adrienne Emerson an important mentor to many students and the community. Her love for engineering began in high school when she joined her schools robotics team. She has been hooked ever since and continues to inspires her students with her passion. Adrienne expresses her adoration for robotics and helps us to understand her dedication towards her team The Robowranglers. Make sure to learn more and gain insight on her life in…

This week, we’re featuring Adrienne Emerson, an important mentor to many students and the community. Her love for engineering began in high.

“Holy cow.” That’s exactly what I said when I read this email from student Adrienne Luedeking:   I can’t make this stuff up, folks.  Seriously. Holy cow. $3,200 is more thanREAD MORE

Adrienne made $3,200 in her first month as a proofreader… and her clients LOVE her!

Our purpose is to share a positive message of hope and not to lose heart. To bring optimism to face and overcome the daily struggles and challenges. But most of all, believe. To believe that "the best is yet to come" and to never ever give up. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Keepthefork

What's in the Box? - Spacers & Washers   This bin is used for bolt spacers and washers.  We order our bolt spacers normally #10 and 1/4" IDs with 1/2" OD. http://ift.tt/2qsiIa9 We have 1/8" 1/4" 1/2" and 1" spacers.  We order most of our washers from zoro.com This also has some wave spring washers for taking up slack on shafts and replacing them in VPs. We order them from McMaster mostly.  - Spectrum  Whats in the Box

Day 32: Sheetmetal should be in tomorrow   Look for our big blog post tomorrow night after we get our sheetmetal back. We have been preparing all our parts to assemble the robots once we get our parts back tomorrow. We have been printing parts including a nice camera mount.  Also preparing our shooter motors with encoders and making the cabling nice and neat.  - Spectrum  "Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting."

Day Sheetmetal should be in tomorrow

Dialing Back the Server Turbine   Backstory  We recently outfitted room 3103C (our side room/kitchen/overflow) with the rolling A/V rack we use for events and a 2U dual-Xeon server for storage and possibly for rendering some new content for the season. To supplement this computer setup we added a shelf to the room that doubles as a desk and storage for assorted A/V supplies (projector screens tripods speakers etc.).  The Problem  While both computers were running without a hitch and the…

Day 29: Adventures in Making a Rack and Pinion   Now that sheet metal has been sent out it's finally time for us to buckle down and figure out some of the smaller parts on our robot. Among these smaller parts is the plate we plan on using to cut off individual lanes in our three-wide shooter.  CAD model for said plate  Our plan for actuating this plate was to have it driven by a REV Smart Servo mounted in the inside of our shooter tower via a rack and pinion. This seemingly simple task…

What's in the Box? - Chain Case   This is a pretty simple one. We keep a case that has our chain tools master links and some amount of chain in it so we can make repair when needed. We have #25 and #35 roller chain master links & half links in the box.  Theses are the cases that we use for larger items:Stack-ON DCOG-10 cases. We label the front of each case so we know what's in it and if we leave it at an event hopefully it will find it's way back to us.  We like to keep the specialty tools…

What's in the Box? - Sensors Case   We are looking at our sensors case today. It's also a bit disorganized. This is a collection of sensors taken from old robots KOPs and things we purchased as well. Some it is just used for testing or to lend out at events in case another team needs something.  Encoders and Encoder Cables  Ultrasonic Sensors  Gyros accelerometers and IMUs  Hall Effect and Inductive Proximity Sensors  Potentiometers  Light sensors IR sensors & IR range sensors  Limit…

Day 48: Recap   So we had a bit of break but we'll try to keep things updated as we move through the competition season.Week 6 Here is the state of the competition robot that we bagged. We didn't really get to perform a full system check on it but we are confident the subsystems work.  Gear Intake  We are very pleased with the state of the gear intake. We have the control system working on it so their automatic gear pick up routines that lower the gear intake spin the intake wheels and…

What's in the box? - TSTAK Toolboxes   Today we are going to dive into the Dewalt TSTAK toolboxes that we take with us to competitions. We have gotten a lot of questions about these in the past. We love them since they are modular and can be transported easily in smaller vehicles. If you don't have the luxury of a team trailer to move around large rolling toolboxes TSTAKs are a great alternative. We purchase them from zoro.com  Items we use  Top Chest  2 Drawers  Large Drawer  Cart  Full…

What's in the Box? - 10-24 & 3/16" Rivet Case  Here is one of the cases we need to organize a bit more. It's are most used case so it's understandable that the bins don't stay perfectly organized but it's still usable.  We use our label maker to label the tops of the cases so we know what's supposed to be under them.  This case is for our most commonly used fasteners 10-24 and 3/16" rivets. We know there are teams that hate 10-24 bolts but they work for us. We also need to restock some of…

Day 10: CAD progressing even further   Here is a portion of the CAD we have done for the robot. The drive train and a portion of the intake will get their Rev 1 versions sent to our laser cut sponsors tomorrow to be made so we can get it setup on the practice robot to make sure everything is correct before we run the production models. Intake compression distances and belt lengths will be critical in making a blazing fast intake for this many balls. Be sure to tune in tomorrow evening at 6…

Day 16: The 2nd third of the season   We are now officially in to the 2nd third of the season. Teams should be rounding out their ideas and prototypes and getting heavy in to their designs.  We flushed out our gear intake concept and believe it will be able to load from both the floor and human feeder if needed. We have a second concept that is being designed that will fit a similar geometry that may make our hit box larger for floor loading the gears.  Our prototype drive train and bumpers…

Day 7: Climbing   We continued working on prototypes including retro fitting one of our off-season robots to be a climbing test bed. We had it do a test climb but we had attached the rope to it. Now to learn how to grab the rope.  The prototype drive train is made from plywood and peg board which makes testing electronics layouts easier.  We continued getting the programming test bench ready for the programmers to start autonomous testing.  - Spectrum  But what if I make a mistake?' Will…
