As usual, the day began with a meeting. But this one was at 10:00 AM as there was no school. After this brief meeting, the members broke off to accomplish their daily tasks.
Lousaper, our wonderful lady of the Lathe, has been on a streak of making parts on the Lathe. This day was no exception, and she finished the Shooter-Gearbox Spacers and Tension Rods.
Business team member Nicole worked on the Alumni Book and began adding sponsor vinyl to Team 696’s trailer. Anna finished 7 sections of the Business Plan and helped Arvin with some dog tags after working on the vinyl machine.
Andrea worked with Arvin on the Laser Cutter to complete the dog tags.
For lunch Team 696 were given delicious tostadas. They were also given cake as it was Daniel of Programming’s birthday! Happy Birthday Daniel!!!!!! We thank you for the cake.
Jacob of Simulation worked on documenting what he and Dr. Stone have been doing for the entire Build Season thus far. With about a page done, there’s still much to write about and even more to do still.
Luke of Web spent the day polishing the Scouting System that we’ll use during competition. During this, fellow Clark student Maggy worked on scripting and story-boarding the Chairman’s Award Video.
CNC Mill member Dustin faced off the remaining stock after doing the first operation on the Arm Plate Supports. To do the operations Dustin and Nanor had to Mill special steps into soft jaws on the Super Mini Mill 2 with CAM program provided by Jonna of CAM. They were able to finish 16 supports, all still needing to be drilled.
Programming member Daniel worked on programming the Robot so it could drive straight if needed. Alexander halted his work to put on the Pivot Arm.
Dustin of CAD worked with CAM member James on the Mill to create Soft Jaws to then manufacture the Winch Spool.
Karin of Prototype team helped Vice-President Alexander attach small BaneBot wheels onto the Shooter. She and CAD member Mikia then joined Alexander, President Mika, Programmer Daniel, and Photographer/Blogger and Ruggedly Handsome member Samuel in the gym. While there members helped try and attach the Pivot Arm to the Robot and make the Obstacles more secure.
Before long it was time to clean up the area, so around 5:30 CAD members Anthony and Claire as well as CAM member Jonna, CNC Mill member Nanor, and Prototype member Lauren were called down to assist. Together they were able to clean up the area and return to the lab in no time.
Alexander continued to work on the Robot after bringing it back up into the lab. Still attempting to attach the Pivot Arm, he first had to attach additional parts.
Mr. Black finished machining the Lathe Operations to create the Winch Spools, but they still need work before becoming completely finished.
The lab closed fairly early at about 7:45 PM to allow the members to head home and finish their homework before school the next day.
