Day 18: Parts arrive!

Today more parts came! This resulted in lots of building, from using our various tools to creating metal contraptions to assembling the dreaded gearboxes. The gearbox assembly process was an…interesting one. Despite coming with instructions, drivebase gearboxes continue to be the bane of our existence as a battle with grease ensued (the grease won, by the way).
With so many parts in, and many more to come, we expect these next few meetings to be as busy as today, if not even busier. We hope to be as productive as humanly possible (for us, at least) in order to finish this robot early.
