-A **robotic lift** is a mechanical system in the robot that allows the change of positioning,​ typically height, of another mechanism or object. Lifts are typically used in conjunction with a claw, [[robot_design/​intakes|intake]],​ or launcher to move, place, reposition or retrieve objects to places the robot would otherwise be unable to reach. Various types of lifts exist and each have their own purpose and capabilities.+A **robotic lift** is a mechanical system in the robot that allows the change of positioning,​ typically height, of another mechanism or object.

 ====Bar==== ====Bar====
 **Bar lifts** use rotational motion to rotate an arm usually made of c-channel to reach high places. This rotational motion allows objects attached to the lift to rotate at an arc, usually resulting in the attached mechanism to reach out as it gets higher. Of the common lift designs, bar lifts are more versatile due to its simplistic design and the amount of variations developed for this type of lift. However, they are limited by their comparitively low (compared to a reverse bar or scissor) reach though bar lifts can reach higher by stacking more bars above the existing bar. **Bar lifts** use rotational motion to rotate an arm usually made of c-channel to reach high places.
