This year was our first big offseason training and project effort. We got funding from parents to create an offseason bot that tested out West Coast Drive, custom gearboxes, encoders, and more advanced mechanisms than we have done before. New students received training on the various tools (drill press, vertical / horizontal bandsaw, drills, etc) and a small group is being lead by one of our mentors, Anand, in more advanced machining (Manual and CNC mill). We had a lot of fun this season and are really happy with how trained and experienced even our new students are. A more detailed blog in google doc form can be found here. We have a great CAD team, and they have been trained throughout the year. They have experience making custom gearboxes, and have spent a lot of time sketching potential mechanisms to solve a problem. I will attach a bunch of pics.
