This week the team presented current work in progress. Switching system, track design, L beams were some of the topics of interest. We were also able to organize the work clearer to have a more efficient semester. See below:
This week we had our second presentations, which discussed our progress over the past few weeks and during our spring break. The past few weeks we have been reviewing and modifying our designs after finally receiving quotations from Vanderbend. Some of the parts we now have re-evaluate and redesign due to over-budgeting costs as well as too long of lead times. Because of this, many of our parts may need to be fabricated out of plywood instead of sheetmetal to obtain as an accurate as possible representation of the actual designs.
This week we had our Lightning talk of the semester. We went over project requirements, bill of materials, progress, and main things we will need to do in order to receive project funding from Futran. Our project has been distributed into 3 main sections which will help with project funding allocation.
