Day Fifteen: Wait...That's illegal
Today was a very eventful day, we mainly worked on the elevator and making our robot legal by moving our foundation grabber to the side instead of the front. We moved our elevator down to fit within height regulations, and also had to move our intake up on the elevator. Unfortunately, the elevator was previously too tall so we pretty much had to redesign and mount the entire thing, which was a pain but worth it because our robot is now legal!! yay!!!11!!1! When we were doing that, our intake fell off the robot which was scary but we managed to fit it without breaking. Additionally, The robot was also too long from front to back, and so we had to move either the intake mechanism or the foundation mover. We chose the foundation mover because it’s smaller and simpler to detach and reattach, as well as the fact that moving the intake would make it more difficult for driving and operating. In the end, moving the foundation-mover wasn’t too hard, but crucial to our success.
