Seeker 2x - Finishing It, Finally!

So, as many of you are aware (at least, if you've read this blog since the beginning), I have a new mini-sumo (Seeker 2x) that I started working on almost two years ago, but have yet to finish. The 2009 robot games (Canadian National Robot Games) is coming up in about three weeks, and I decided that I'm definitely going to compete with it.

There are only a few things left to do:
  1. print a lid and the front lid mount (the front ProxDot sensor will be attached to this also), and attach it to the front bar
  2. mold the tires
  3. machine and mount the front scoop
  4. paint it
  5. finish the software
I've got the first tire in the mold now - hopefully it will come out nicely. The picture here shows the mold, with the tire (2-part polyurethane) freshly poured. I'll take it apart tomorrow, and see how it turned out.
