The past couple weeks have been action packed! We finished almost all of our sheet metal drawings and have sent them out to be manufactured. The first order of sheet metal arrived today and we were excited to be able to start putting it together to make sure that everything fits before we start welding. We have also been able to set up a test circuit for our hydraulics and cannot wait to start our testing process. There is still a lot of work to go but we are pumped to start the building phase and continue our testing.
The new school semester has started and the team is ready to jump right back into designing after the holiday break. We kicked off the semesters with a tutorial from a previous member, thus helping ensure that all of our first year members felt completely comfortable with Solidworks. Our sheet metal designs are almost completed and we are looking forward to sending them to our sponsors. The electronics team has been working hard and they are very eager to implement our new electronic systems on this year’s tractor. Overall, we are motivated and energized and cannot wait to begin to build!
