The 5’ x 5’ x 5’ wooden crate that will be used for tool transportation in the St. Louis trip is being worked on. The first of two coats of blue paint was applied to patch the blank patches in a lighter color.
Scrimmaging is continually being conducted in preparation for worlds.
Reducing Cycle Time
Testing Bumper Material
In addition, new bumper fabric is being added to lower the coefficient of friction and time “T-boned.”
The team cut six solid metal 2’ x 4’s for wider wheel hubs. This will create more traction on Barrage’s wheels to lessen time “T-boned.”
Field Construction: 1 Point Goals
The team has been brainstorming to create two more wooden 1-point goals based on the measurements from the CAD. These are being constructed in order to have balanced coverage of goals on the left-most side of the field.
