Build Update – Day 18

Hey, guys! Today was another busy day for the CAD team as they are getting drawings ready for the machinists to begin construction. The machinists have begun some basic building like cutting down the driverail. They will be having a more difficult time this year, as our gearbox now exists within the rail its self. The effort will pay off with decreased weight and size, leaving more room for our awesome mechanisms.

We’re also adding a new member to our team! Meet Mr. Potato.

Mr. Potato will be helping us test some dimensions and restrictions. He’s been equipped with our custom wheel assemblies, and there’s more to come when our mechanisms take shape.
