Here are the images from our Solidworks robot design, with the addition of the claw:

This week, the Bolt Brothers made a lot of progress in coding our robot to complete the autonomous tetrahedron challenge, but we came up just short of completing it before the break. However, I'm sure once we get back all fresh and ready to work hard again, we'll finish up the challenge and get to work on the next one! We also completed our robot design , enhanced with the claw, in Solidworks this week. After getting through some adversity in terms of completing our robot code, we were finally able to get the code complete by the end of the week, and were able to take on the challenge. We'll be back after next week to continue working!

How's it going Bolt Nation! This week should be a long week of programming our Bolt Bot for the next task, which is autonomous. We were able to get through the challenge using the controller with ease, but programming the squarebot should be a difficult task. Hopefully we'll be back on Friday to share some good progress!

Hey Bolt Nation, we're starting off another exciting week here in engineering period 3. This week, we hope to complete our build of the claw, and hopefully complete the next challenge! It's going to be a big week ahead for the team, but I know that we'll get the job done as long as we work hard as a team!

Here are the images from our robot design on Solidworks:
This week, the Bolt Brothers have begun work on constructing the claw for the next challenge. We are also hard at work on creating our bot in Solidworks. We're hoping to have the next challenge complete by next Friday, and then it's on to programming our robot to autonomously placing the tetrahedrons. Wish us luck!

Happy Monday Bolt Nation! This week will be a big week for the Bolt Brothers, as we begin to work on the third challenge: controlling the robot to lift tetrahedrons onto a rack! Today we got the job done on autonomous programming, a great way to start off the week! This next challenge should be a huge task for us, but if we work together I know we'll get the job done!
