This project started along with my 3rd year at Bosco Tech https://www.boscotech.edu/. It was one of the first things assigned in my tech class, IDEA, (Integrated Design, Engineering, and Art) that school year and I was quite excited to get back to it. This was a relatively small but productive team project (at least for me). We were all required to work on this project with random small groups of 3-4 or something like that. The assignment was to recreate an existing robot part from the prior season’s FRC https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc robot in CAD then in real life if given enough time. After that, the group was to make an improved version in CAD then manufacture that as well or something along those lines.
I don’t remember who was in my group but that doesn’t matter because I ended up doing all of the work myself (actually had points taken off for doing too much work). It wasn’t like I was hogging the work; I was just the only one in my group motivated enough to do the work instead of playing games on the phone. Anyways, our group was given the carriage assembly to work on. In short, I replicated it in cad, 3D printed it, replicated a different one in CAD, manufactured it in the machine shop and also 3D printed it. I just thought this was worth mentioning in a post of its own. Here is the gallery. Thank You!
