After getting our arduino side code to an almost final state, we are ready to lock in our wiring. Now we are in the lab soldering our pcbs.

We're putting the final touches on our project. We're 95% done with soldering, and we're ready to build the casing. We're super excited to present tomorrow!

We finished laser cutting our casings and we are just putting them together. Now that our code and electronics are in final form we are on the home stretch!

We are CAD-ing up our frame so that we can laser cut our pieces tonight. We are going to laser cut the pieces out of acrylic, and put them together with glue. Our pieces have to be able to slide against each other and attach to the lead screws for movement, so we have to be careful how we design them.

We laser cut our first set of pieces. We are on track to have all of our pieces cut tonight, and ready for assembly tomorrow.

We are hard at work putting together schematics for our dipping arm. We plan to build the frame using acrylic, and use lead screws to move the arm laterally, and to move the dipper up and down. We have a rough sketch, and are working to solidify our measurements, so that we can laser cut our parts.
