Build Update- Day 35

Things are coming along at the shop, but we have lots of work ahead of us this weekend. We are still making some adjustments on our first set of drive rails, and we also spent quite a bit of time tonight working with the elevator.  With the carriage not riding completely steady, students have been working on a few different solutions to correct this issues.


The CAD team is still constantly printing new drawings, so there is no shortage of work for the millers and lathers.   We’re still focusing on a first robot, but if we have a very productive weekend, we’re hoping to start cutting blanks and working on duplicate pieces for our second robot next week. With just one week until our Week 0 event it’s crunch time at the shop, and with lots of final pieces being made it should be a busy weekend of assembling!
