As a team, we have decided to move to a new way of design for our robot: 3D design. With 3D printing, we believe this will be efficient, will expand our knowledge, and will pave the way to an improved robot for the upcoming year.
Weâve began to practice using our newly purchased 3D printer by making various objects before we begin to create the needed pieces and parts for our robot.
Above is our Lulzbot Mini 3d printer. It has a 6â x 6â bed, automatic leveling, and can print using a variety of filaments. We are using Cura as our printing program. We will start to use Blender as a design program and building up to AutoCAD from there. Let the adventure begin!
