“Thanks to Agile we were able to have some very precise parts, which greatly suited our needs especially for components like servos which required carefully fabricated components”
To the team at Agile Manufacturing Inc:
UW Robotics Team has been very grateful for the rapid prototyping services provided by your company over the past couple months. Your company’s sponsorship has been an integral part of the construction of our rover and we wanted to showcase the impact your company has had on our team. Below is a compilation of how your parts have contributed to this year’s rover design!
For our 2021 rover model, we decided to redesign our entire gimbal mounting system. We used your 3D printing services to create a lightweight, servo powered gimbal used to house the operator control camera on the gimbal.
This year, we also completely redesigned components of our science mechanism to utilize an optimized Geneva drive indexing mechanism with a belt driven shovel. This mechanism is used to collect and test soil samples for one of our competition missions. Multiple parts were fabricated using your FDM and SLA printing services.
Our SAR competition submission video does a great job to summarize the functions and capabilities of our rover as a whole, and UW Robotics encourages you to take a look at it when you can!
