This floorball thrower was used in our winning robot in the 2019 Robot Uprising: Artificial Invaders robotics competition in Helsinki.
The motors we chose seem to be overkill and we ended up running them at a very low rpm.
We recommend printing the parts with several outer perimiters and operating the device with caution since it's potentially dangerous if something breaks off while the wheels are spinning or if it's operated carelessly.
Feel free to modify this design. You can download the cad file here:
If you're interested in the robotics competition, you can view a recording of it in Twitch:
