Week 4 has ended, but team 1160 is more excited than ever! On the mechanical side of things, our robot’s intake has been finished, meaning we can successfully collect and launch power cubes!
Our CAD department has been hard at work finalizing the CAD model of the robot, with one of our CADers, Max Winn, calling the process “extremely stressful with many obstacles, but with teamwork, CADing has become a breeze!” On the programming side of our squad, Programmers have had a bit of a slow week, with 3 days being spent on reading code documentation alone. Hopefully, next week will be more productive! Outside of the robotics room, Shawn Thai, our president, held an informative general meeting, showing off what our robot should look like by the end of week six, and on Friday, the team kicked back, relax, and held a barbeque! With such an eventful week 4, we can’t wait for week 5!
With Week 3 coming to a close, Titanium has celebrated another successful build week! This week, the team began to start on the machining process, and all members agreed the process was incredibly efficient.
Kyle Weng, Programming captain, said “Week three was an incredible week for programming, with the process of motion profiling beginning”
Will Li, a Titanium mentor, went on to say ” Working on the bot was great, but my favorite part was the sugar-free gummy bears!”
Overall, 1160 had an incredible Week 3, and we’ll see you guys next week!
This week the team worked hard to finalize our robot designs. Our CAD team worked tirelessly on designs and will continue to work well through week 3. As for mechanical engineering, two drive trains have been completed and we have begun machining other parts, which will hopefully be assembled later on in the course of the season.
Though we’d had a substantial amount of hard work put in at the shop, it was closed for two days in an effort for us to focus a bit more on finalizing designs rather than building aimlessly. This ultimately helped the team loads as we got back to work on Saturday with energy to spare!
Over on the business side, we’ve been working on our Chairman’s application, finalized this season’s T-shirt design, and have worked to attain a new sponsor. We are incredibly grateful that ICM Resources, Inc. has decided to join forces with us and help us to achieve more on the team.

Overall, the team has had a successful and eventful week two and look forward to the many weeks to come!
With week one of build season coming to a close, we are glad to say it was a great success! Prototyping being the main focus, went incredibly well, with mechanisms being designed and perfected for the upcoming robot. Some mechanisms include a climber and an intake for the Power Cubes.
