The first printed cabin was tested with the components of the controls team on Sunday March 19th, and the controls team said that the space inside the cabin is big enough for all their components. They want new holes to be added at the back and also to make the back wall of the bogie to be smaller. The RFID slot had to be made a bit bigger. And the hole at the top where we attach the bogie had to be 0.25 inches slimmer so that it will be easier to screw the bogie. The holes of the ultrasonic sensor will now only be on one side of the cabin and the other half will be made smaller.
We also spoke with professor Youssefi because he was concern that we wanted too many parts printed but he said he was going to do the best he could to get us as many bogies printed since the 3D printer is also being used by a robotics class. He said he will give us at least one set of a bogie by this week. Ernest is continuing to print as many parts as we can at the shop, and Moralma as many cabins before the shop closes on March 23rd.
We are also waiting to test out our switching mechanism since we are still waiting on some parts to be delivered.
The new design of the cabin being printed this week.
