Build Season: Day 15

We once again started off our Saturday meeting with breakfast being made by Bear Metal students. It was a very productive day with a large chunk of the work going into the programming chassis being done.

Programming: Continued the work from yesterday while progressing vision code and explaining what we have done to the other members.

Design: Continued to design our cube manipulator and refined our general design.

Assembly: Started work on assembling the drive chassis for the programmers.

Fabrication: Finished the milling of the programming chassis. Side tubes for the chassis had to be redone due to an issue with setting the y axis on the mill. 

Electronics: Finished the assembly and wiring of the programming chassis. Re-ID’d some Talon SRX and Victor SPX motor controllers. Looked into the possibility of connecting multiple sensors and devices to the Talon SRX’s data port.
