Corner Jig

By Mateo B.

It is important to always line up your robot correctly. Last year we made a corner jig. The corner jig helps us line up the robot the same way when we need to line up at a 45 degree angle. The challenge to building a corner jig is to get the angles right while making it the right number of spaces along the long side so that it actually connects correctly. The pictures below show our jig from two different angles. The black portions sticking out were placed along the sides of the robot so that we could always start at the same spot.
