After a brief hiatus, I'm back the the blog life. Today we worked on putting the drivetrain together while prototyping more mechanisms. Field construction is going well, we are starting HAB next as it is one of the most important field elements for our strategy. Design is going well, we messed up on the drivetrain / bellypan hole pattern which is extremely annoying, we need to get better at releasing versions to manufacturing. Elevator CAD is mostly done, now working on the carriage and wrist gearbox. Andrew is ballin out on the lathe, finishing all the shafts for both drivetrains. Prototypes are going well, cargo mech is getting more fleshed out so design as some measurements to start designing around. Next, we are starting on prototyping for a center grab style for the hatch panel. More to come!
