CNC Mill team member Dustin finished the Main Robot Arm 3″ x 3″ x 26″ box-tube. During this task, he had James of CAM slightly alter the program after the first half of the total operation. Despite one dent in the third one due to a CAM and matching error.¬†Throughout this, other member Nanor worked with CAM member Jonna on finishing up the Sprocket Plates. They also had to Mill out steps on a pair of Soft Jaws in order for it to fit the part made last time.
