Today, we completed an important part of our new Rover Challenge robot for the New York Hall of Science. The central focus of this robot’s design is the Main Plate. This is an intricate aluminum part that we designed on the CAD system and machined on the CNC. It’s 8″ x 15″ x .190″. It’s meant to hold all the servos, electronics, camera turret, and other components of the robot, so it’s the chassis, mounting plate, and wire organizer all at once. It took a while to design it, but we’re very happy with it so far. Keep your fingers crossed we haven’t forgotten anything!
