2581B – Nothing But Net
Before the Grandville tournament, Team B's robot used a gate-style intake to pick up balls and a cam system to launch balls into the high goal. However, they found that the gate intake was not as effective as they had hoped, and redesigned their intake to a simpler conveyor belt and added a single flywheel launcher for lobbing balls into the high goal up close, finding that the cam was excellent for long range shooting.
Turbo motors were used for the single flywheel and the drive motors in order to be able to launch further and so that the robot will be able to move faster. The robot has a base the shape of a square, and the robot’s intake consists of two long axles with four sprockets evenly spaced apart on the front and middle of the robot. There is a bar to funnel the balls into the launcher while the intake continues to pull the balls vertically up to the launcher, using a chain and a plate. The launchers are placed at the back of the robot, the fly wheel on the right, and cam on the left, with both launchers aimed towards the front.
