ShortyBot – Designed by FRC TEAM 1635

Introducing the ShortyBot, This bot was designed to perform in the FIRST Competition Stronghold. With the help of the members and mentors of TEAM 1635, this dream came true. We mainly focused on proficiency and the matter of competition. This robots most difficult part was building the custom tracks. We started off, by working in AutoCAD and SolidWorks, then we installed the design on the robot. In order to protect the wiring on the robot, we embed bent sheet metals. With numerous amounts of testing, and staying long hours at the workshop, this architecture became possible to build. TEAM 1635 can’t wait to take this bad boy at the competition. #Stronghold #TEAM1635 #FRC #FIRST
