Team 2550 Build Season Update: CAD Model 1

The 2017 Steamworks build season is off to a start and we are ready to conquer the season! FIRST® STEAMWORKSSM is the 2017 FIRST Robotics Competition game that takes in an era where we relied on steam power. In the game, robots collect fuel to build steam pressure by scoring in goals. Once the robots accumulate enough fuel, they need to climb the airships in order to catch the airship before it takes off. 

This year, we decided to go with a robot that can collect, hold, and shoot fuel (various field elements) into designated goals. Our team has begun the construction and 3D modeling utilizing Autodesk Inventor, a mechanical design and 3D software.

Stay tuned for more updates!
