Yes, exactly what we paid for.
We were not looking for a complete solution for the lift, just the ability to add functional guides for the up and down motion that would be robust and adaptable to our needs. that is what we got. Really appreciate the weight of the whole assembly and the strength of the final mechanism (we were initially very concerned about the thin wall aluminum 1 x 2 that comes with it) It more than met our needs, It handled countless prototype failures where motors were set to full power 6 inches above where there was track to move, things broke, but the tube always held up. Very happy with our final solution, and if we hadn't lost the week and a half to the snow our first district event would have gone better, no fault of the lift that we did poorly week one. I recommend this to anyone looking to design a functional robot that takes student efforts into account. Also a REV NEO at full power is a dangerous thing :-)
EXACTLY what you pay for.
When purchasing this component, we assumed the instructions would have information about how to mount a motor. This is an incorrect assumption. When we realized the issue, I called their support line, and they told me that they have no support for mounting a motor, BUT if I looked on YouTube, I would be able to find teams that are demoing the system. As a side note, our robot is using both AndyMark's elevator system and a competitor's. The competitor's system not only has a 40 minute video detailing every aspect of the lift. The video gives the builders best practices and even explains possible pitfalls. (AndyMark response: This product is a bearing system and structure, and does not include power transmission. Thank you for the suggestion of improving our instructions and video content.)
