Day 20: Building and CAD

Today we continued the manufacturing process as we relentlessly pursue our goal of having a finished robot as soon as possible. While this took place in different ways, some of the more common methods were physically assembling parts we’ve received and continuing to work on CAD models of the entire robot and individual parts as well. Unfortunately, we ran into an issue when Solidworks crashed in the middle of saving the whole robot model. This corrupted the file and we had to start over. However, this will not stop us for doing whatever it takes to build the robot on time. We continue to invest many hours of hard work into refining our robot design and hope that those hours will soon pay off.
