This part seves as a low friction attachment. It is built around the VEX Clawbot, for it had an issue with the claw dragging on the arena mat. This was the cause of many frustrations in a timed challenge. the part i have created ataches to the joint of the arm and claw. it has a simple threaded hole as to be easily attached. The smooth rounded surface allows it to drift across the mat with ease. I can not push how vital this part is it dramatically reduces friction and increases the efficiency of the robot.this part was created using th extrude and fillet features in inventor pro. I have learned many things while designing this peace like how to better control the constraints of the fillet command. I feel that this part is very useful and has a majority of uses in any situation in which friction becomes a factor in sucess of the objective. In the end i am proud of the work I have completed and overall impressed by the functionality of Autodesk Inventor Pro.I believe I will continue to use Autodesk Inventor Pro as it is a wonderful program and an important resource in my education. I believe my education in 3-D design will be a great help to my career as I then have the ability to solve problems.
