1/30 – 2/5

This week the dog cage was delivered, taken apart, cut, and reassembled. The linear sliders for the elevator floor were attached also. The stainless steel gear gobbler idea was revised further to have a slide that will open to guide the gear, and is painted with protective varnish. A snowblower motor for the elevator floor was installed, along with a gear motor to open the gear gobbler metal slide. More frame for the robot was put up and the new motors were programmed. The length of the bot had to be shortened by an inch, and the encoder mounts were printed. Most of this weeks work was undoing and redoing ideas and parts to make the robot better or fix a problem in the previous part.
