This week we are very close to finishing this assignment, Wednesday we worked on Inventor so that we can be ready for the Certification exam. Next week will be spring break so there won't be blogs. We have made progress on the robot and are expecting to be done as soon as we get back from the break.

This week, after completing the construction of the arm and successfully mounting it onto the squarebot,
we are officially commencing the tetrahedron challenge, to which we will build one and then control the squarebot to lift it onto the structure shown in the photos here. Nothing else to report.

Now that the circle challenge has been completed, we have now been assigned the Tetrahedron Challenge. A new requirement in regards to our squarebot for this challenge is the construction and inclusion of a robotic arm to the chassis of our assembly in order to grab a tetrahedron prop we need to also make, so that is what we have been working on over the past week.

We have officially completed the challenge regarding the circular motion of the squarebot around two chairs. In order to have done this, we continuously altered the program we were working with to create slightly different changes in the radius of our circle, and then focused on positioning it to the same spot to create a consistent result. Needless to say, our official run worked out smoothly. Nothing else to report.
