Engineering Notebook – 10/10/14


Jacob Allen, Tyler Allen, Danielle Walton


Meeting Notes


  • Today we moved are rack and pinion closer to the center of the robot.
  • We also added a second scissor lift.
  • We tried adding a dumping mechanism to get the balls in to the goals.


  • The motor was not enough to raise the two scissor lift, the gear spun clicking and the scissor lift would not lift and the motor started smoking.
  • We then ordered a twelve inch axle which we are going to put in-between the two rack and pinions.
