Day 18

We got a lot done today, and we needed to, because there will be no meetings tomorrow or the next day to allow team members time to study.

Therefore, we had to almost finalize designs, so people could CAD their parts over the next couple of days to get them machined on Friday and Saturday.

The elevator, gripper, and drive base teams made a lot of progress in finalizing their designs, the roller intake is CADded and ready to machine, and the RC claw team is figuring out how to deal with the massive torque loads of a 10 pound mass on a 50 inch lever arm.

There will be many more pictures of these systems in an update tomorrow, so stay tuned.
