Design Showcase

Catcher

             For this season we wanted to build a catcher design. For this we had very strict design requirements. The catcher must not impede our climbing in any way, it must be able to fit under the 11-inch horizontal climb bar to allow for mobility and it must expand to a large size to allow for the greatest margin of error when shooting. The design we came up with is a telescoping mechanism which uses string to expand all sections of the telescope at the same time. This allows us to pull the string 15cm causing the mechanism to expand over 65cm. Using springs the mechanisms can also retract and less than 2 seconds. Additionally, our catcher mechanism is on a turret which allows us to use our software to be able to shoot from anywhere on the field.
