Coronado High School Robotics Team 7870A Rubber Band Intake Sprocket Vex Make It Real Challenge by Autodesk 2021 Online Challenge Made is Fusion 360 v2.0.9439   The Rubber Band Intake Sprocket is a modified 24T Vex Sprocket designed for use in Rubber Band Intakes. The part utilizes T-shaped teeth to hold rubber bands in place. This allows more customization and prevents the bands from slipping off during competition. The part was optimized using Fusion 360's shape optimization and tested in Fusion 360's simulation workspace. The part was sliced in Fusion 360's manufacturing workspace and printed using a Creality Ender 3 Pro 3d Printer. All images were rendered using Fusion 360 v2.0.9439. Due to local covid-19 restrictions, we had no access to vex parts so the part's functionality had to be demostrated entirely in Fusion 360.
