Unformatted text preview: Cameron Blackmon Luis Valderrama Joseph DeSpain Jacob Hartzer ENGR­111­204 Describe the process of creating the robot. First, we started with examining our pieces. Immediately, we noticed not having enough wheels to make a standard vehicle. Noting that the majority of our LEGO set was to make a sort of treaded vehicle structure, we went to attack in that direction. Next, we took upon building the machine in 2 parts: one focused on the tread, and one focused on the embellishments that would sit upon the vehicle. Unfortunately, we were truly limited in our pieces that the tread could not quite support said embellishments because there were few to none connective pieces. Thus, we turned our focus to stabilizing the tread part as much as we could. The tread was composed of: 1 Tread Wheel 2 Stationary Wheels at Ends 2 Connective Rods that Join Stationary Wheels 2 Branches that Would Connect to Potential Pieces of a Tank, Vehicle, etc. By the end of our timed build, we created a tread that could potentially add on to other treads of a greater machine, like a tank. We disassembled our structure thereafter. Describe what we would do differently were we to do this activity again. During the process, we found it difficult with the pieces we had to come up with an ideal figure. Before we start next time, we can further evaluate our individual pieces to come up with a more driven concept of what we want to build. The recording process should have taken more detail and professionalism, and this can be achieved through better awareness of the step­by­step building processes and individual records of each advancement. It is vital to recognize each component of the machine and how it was constructed chronologically. Though creativity and a certain level of spotaniousity was needed to complete this project, a better designation of each team member’s role will create a more wholesome product in many respects. Function / Drawing of Creation This individual tread component makes up as one of many components to a larger vehicle, in purpose of being more resistant to more inclement conditions. (Sketch) Note: To complete, make sure all parts are complete for assignment and sign all 4 group members’ names with electronic signatures (essentially typing full name). ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
