VEX IQ triangle-Liftarm-interactive Bank Shot/Crossover Season
This tool was developed to help show the relationship between the pivot point and base length for the lift-arm of a Vex IQ Robot operating within the legal limits defined for the 2015/2016 Bank Shot season or the 2016/2017 Crossover season. With a maximum legal horizontal length of 20" and a maximum starting height of 15" it is very easy7to create a design that exceeds this constraint. By adjusting the PivotHeight and the baseLength sliders, the tool will generate the radius path that the arm will follow for lifting the Bank Shot balls from the floor position to an overhead position. Any extension of the arm outside of the legal 20" limit will be displayed in Red. This will basically happen any time the hypotenuse of the right triangle is > 20"
