Our lift system is complete! After a few last minute fixes and tweaks, our lift system is fully functioning. One of the main issues with the lift system was the motors, they were internally damaged. We quickly ordered new motors, which thankfully have just arrived.
The main event of the week has been the gripper. After building it, we had to take it apart and reassemble it with some adjustments. The main issue with the gripper was its weight. It was simply too heavy. The issue has now been resolved, and our robot is nearly complete.
