Today we finished our SolidWorks assignment having the robot fully represented inside the program. We still have issues with the Figure-eight, specifically the last turn before it completes the figure-eight. Next week we will work towards finishing this challenge and taking on the next one.

While I was working on finishing up the blogs, Joey was acquiring the SolidWorks parts. We are editing the Figure-eight program to finally complete its task. Hopefully by Friday we will have the program finally finished and ready to go.

So we figured out the problem with our programming is that our robot needed extra lines of code to help it make the turns we needed. It was about this time we came to the realization we had to program 2 figure 8's for our robot to do, thus we'll continue that next week.

We, are attempting to finalize our plans to complete the figure 8 task. Programming it t turn at the right time around the chairs is our biggest enemy. We'll have to revisit this problem the next time we meet, and fix the programming.

Today we started on the figure-eight. We've gotten relatively far on our first attempt. For ease of carrying the robot, we attached a handle to it by using one of the bent axles.When we get back from Spring Break we will make more edits to the Figure-eight program.

Today we worked on fixing parts of the robot. We realized the axles for the wheels were too far out and was catching onto the chair. We repaired it by pushing the axles in more. Next time we'll start on the figure-eight.

We came back to the Robot, connecting the controller to show that it works with the robot. We then Drove it over to Martin, and he told us to start programming it to make a figure 8. We finally fixed the problem with the chassis of the robot so we are ready to continue next week.

We Started Building and Assembling our robot, We chose the Claw Bot due to the desire to challenge ourselves. We got all the necessary materials to build the Robot. Sadly While assembling it we ran into some problems with the chassis, we had put the sides on backwards,so we have to come back next class to assess and fix the problem.

We continued working on building the robots on SolidWorks. While we were doing that, we were also creating our blog website and entering our blog posts into the website. We had a bit of problems in the beginning but we managed to resolve them with team work and effort. We will continue to work on building our robots on SolidWorks next upcoming weeks.

We started the week looking for robot parts off the Vex site to create a SolidWorks version of our robot. We looked at 2 different types of robots "The Claw Bot" and "The Square bot". As A team we decided to start working on "The Claw Bot", and get the parts by the end of the week.
