This week we got a lot done. As you can see below we finished building the tetrahedron retriever in solid works. We also did the manual challenge for putting the two tetrahedrons on the tower in less than a minute. Even better than that though, right as the bell was ringing we finished the autonomous tetrahedron challenge with just one class of programming.

This week we are continuing to work on the claw bot. We have it almost completely built and programmed. We need to build our tetrahedron to do the challenge. We plan to build our tetrahedron out of straws and tape to make it stronger. Our goals for this week is to finish up our bot on solid works and do the first tetrahedron challenge.

This week was a little slow starting up with the claw bot. We did finish building t for the most part and its programmed, but we will not be able to complete the challenge because we didn't build the tetrahedral needed. On a positive side though we decided to start working on the modifications in Solid works so we aren't super behind.

This week we are setting some new goals. To start we need to modify some things on the robot to even have the ability to put the claw on there. I would also like to get it fully assembled and programmed. To fully complete our goal I think we should attempt to complete the second challenge.

This week we got a lot accomplished. We finished the first challenge successfully on our first try. Also we finished building our robot in Solid works as you can see below in the blog. Next week we will set some new goals and move on to some other challenges.
