FRC 1640 Punchlist
From DEW Robotics
- Prototype slingshot to determine accuracy of shot positions, including by pipe (pullback) adjustment
- Prototype roller frame for required rise (without or with forks)
- Prototype JVN catapult to determine accuracy of shot positions and how to load
- Field pieces
- Shop organization tools
- Stack-style chassis CAD for early plywood cut (Molly)
- Stack-style chassis tradeoffs (Ben, Gary, Siri, Clem, Molly, Kira)
- Layout basic state logic with programmers (Siri, Julie - draft done)
- System-level ball routing, ball auto-ejection, manipulator tensioning
Programming / Control
- All programming team members need to install LabVIEW and FRC software on a personal computer (see DEWBOT_X_Programming for details) -- Make sure FRC 2014 appears when starting LabVIEW
- All programming team members need to complete the certification test
- Preliminary list of programming products needs to be created
- The programming team needs to organize into product sub-teams
- Position and angular error spread for autonomous movement (by revolution counts) via testing procedure (Pat, Julie, Siri - procedure documented)
- Demonstrate move to/wait for Hot Goal
- Layout preliminary match and pit UI sheets and Excel/Tableau files
- Lock down prioritize (first generation) metrics
- Paint more hats
- Plan/start videos (at least release video)
- Vests and sweatshirts
- Complete machinist's shelf unit.
- Build a shelf storage unit for the welding area giving welding team much needed practice.
- We've been using alloy 4043 for all our robot welding. However, alloy 5356 may be a better choice. It is more ductile and stronger especially in shear, which it what many of our chassis joints are subject to. We need to devise a simple test to evaluate.
- Prepare the welding table for use, including grinding off lumps and bumps, and checking for flatness.
- Make some specialty clamps suitable for chassis clamping and holding. Drill holes in table top to accept those clamps.
