3d-caddit “lent us a hand”

armEverything’s much easier when you have friends to support you! This time, 3d-caddit lent us a hand – though as you’ll see on the image, kind of literally! 🙂
3d-caddit was kind enough to donate us ABS filament for MakerBot. Because of that, we were able to print some components for our robots’ mechanisms. On the image on the right, you can see a robotic arm which will be used for some of the games in the competition.

Thanks 3d-caddit! Hopefully, this will help us ‘catch’ some points! 😉

Milestone 1 almost done!

One step at a time we are getting closer and closer to our first milestone!

Help is coming from all around, people are being extremely kind and generous. With their help, encoder mounts are completed and our robot is almost ready for it’s first steps 🙂

Lagerton provided us with some high quality bearings while 3D-caddit was kind enough to donate us with the material for MakerBot printer. Politehnika (a school where two of our teammates currently go to and where another one used to go) allowed us to use their machines for mechanical production as well as the necessary material. All of them were very quick to respond and pleasant to communicate with, so on this occasion we’d like to thank them a lot for everything!

It’s a bit hard to share our progress with the software, so we’ll just share the photos of the encoder mounts we made, and hopefully in several days you’ll be able to check back for a video of our first run.

We hope you like it!
