Our improved scissor lift design! We still have lots of work to do, but
wanted to share what we have so far with other VEX teams out there.
USE BARRINGS FOR YOUR SCISSOR LIFT
Great job! We saw your first video and we see improvement in this one. Rock
on! (Yes, we are cheesy like that.)
I am the coach of a Middle School team VERY interested in the idea of using
this rack and pinion for a scissor lift. Anyway we can see some close-up
pictures? Thanks! Hope to talk soon!
Team 5658E here! Some of the scissor lift designs i’ve seen at competitions
have been really bad. I’m glad someone had the decency to build one that
actually works. We use an elevator lift that can reach maximum 5 Skyrise
and 4 Cubes with a claw for Skyrises and a passive cube intake. We are
still deciding on a base to use as ours is really unconventional. I’ve been
thinking of an X drive but if you have any suggestions that’d be great!
Love the design, we are building something like it but our main struggle
right now is mounting the rack and pinion onto the scissor lift. Any
suggestions, pictures, etc?
You can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
hey I’m making a vex bot with a rack and pinion controlled scissor lift and
id like some close ups of the pinion
Just a suggestion, I’m not sure if you’re having any problems with friction
on your lift but adding bearings and washers to the linkages definitely
helps by minimizing the contact between metals. Also, you should make sure
that you linkage tightness isn’t exceeding what you really need as in when
it comes to scissor lifts it could very well damage the whole mechanism. I
don’t see any of these problems on your video except for the bearings
recommendation but I still commented as a heads up because if
you’ve overtightened your linkages you could speed it up by reducing your
friction and your tightness. Bearings provide an indisputably great
mounting space for your linkage screws whilst also reducing damage to the
metal and the screw. Anyway, good luck, your robot looks very well built
and it works well other than that. What you’ve gotta work on from now on
are the details that distinguish a good robot from an excellent robot.

Loving the design! Any chance of up close pictures? It’s really awesome and
Id love to see more!
