This part was created to fix one major problem that our team runs into a lot; not having a long enough axle. This piece combines two shaft collars with a recreated shaft coupler in order to hold two axles together. It can be used to extend multiple small axles to fit a required distance that your available axles cannot reach. We used AutoDesk Inventor to create this part. It was created as a new part then assembled with the current shaft collar screws. We learned that AutoDesk Inventor differs from other CAD softwares but we plan to use it more in the future because the VEX parts library is extremely useful. Everyone on our team is planning on pursuing an engineering career and learning 3D design software is very helpful.
