What we’re responsible for:

  • Building the frame, body, and any moving parts
  • Designing manipulators to help carry out tasks as efficiently as possible

What we use:

  • SolidWorks for the designing process
  • Machinery in the SDELC to bring designs to life

This division is great for anyone with an interest in creative problem solving, fabrication, or design.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more, feel free to email Blaine Terry at bmtd7z@mst.edu.

Here’s an idea of what our division has been up to:

December 2021 Mechanical: Frame Construction

This semester, the Mechanical Division was hard at work. The frame of the new ROV has been cut and is mostly assembled, as can be seen in the general update. The current project is testing the gaskets and collars that are sealing the enclosure lid and the electrical connections between Read more…

New Robot Drives Anywhere Without Turning

Though we obviously have a few big robots we’ve built for competitions, we at Missouri S&T’s Robotics Competition Team now have a much smaller addition. Our new pint-sized robot, which we’ve given the name Micro Prime (or μPrime), uses an advanced drive mechanism called swerve drive. Basically, this means that Read more…
