Build Sessions – Week 3, Part 1

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Tuesday, January 20, was the first day MARS/WARS was able to implement its new modeling schedule, which enables team members to work for an additional three hours. During this added work time, the modeling team generated prints for parts to forward to the fabrication team. Production of several of these parts began during the regularly scheduled build session that followed the modeling meeting. In addition to this, the team was able to get a swerve drive module functioning in one axis, an important milestone in the team’s production of the chassis.

School was not in attendance in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which enabled MARS/WARS to conduct a full day build session. Refinements to the tote elevator prototype were made to bring it closer to its completion for review. The modeling team made advancements with adjustments to the swerve drive, securing previously shifting parts stationary. The programming team continued to test the swerve drive and has began to implement their code for testing. A team meeting was held at lunch time and team members were informally quizzed on the teams that will be present at the Central Illinois Regional. The sub teams met individually to determine their weekly goals as well as nominate a sub team star for the week.
