Team members:

Team Roaring Bears' Robotic Arm

The Roaring Bears' Robotic Arm

The Roaring Bears constructed a fairly simple arm of total length 44 cm.

The Roaring Bears' Robotic Arm in SolidWorks

They modeled it in SolidWorks using mostly pre-drawn parts, with some additions included, such as the first servo bracket and the pencil holder.
