Tonight was a big night of machining at the shop! We worked on milling parts for the container elevator system as well as parts of the drive train. We also had a few students working on the lathe on the hubs for our wheels.
As we wait for more drawings from our ever-busy CAD team, students have worked on getting some side projects done before the major building time begins. Our battery cart has fallen into a sad state of disrepair so a group of students have been doing some woodworking to make a new face plate for that. We also have been using this down time in the waiting-for-CAD stage to continue to train our rookie team members on the more complex machinery so they are ready when we start more machining for the practice and final robots.
Should be a busy last half of week 3!!
