Due at Beginning of Section

  • Hardware based upon 3D CAD design (complete as a team). There can be a significant advantage to designing with 3D CAD before building especially with laser-cut or 3D printed parts. Choose one part of your robot that includes at least 3 parts, and: 
    • Print paper copy of 3D CAD model 
    • Demonstrate part built from that model.
    • Example:
  • Inventor Assembly Assignment
  • Dimensioning Assignment
  • Intermediate Peer Review
  • Updated Gantt Chart
  • Power Train Exercise
  • Gear/Moment Arm Assignment 

    Before lab each students is to complete both the Gear Exercise and the Moment Exercise. Turn in hard copies of your solutions.

    For the Gear Exercise, m1 is 60g. You should measure the size of r1, r2, p1, p2 to figure out the mass of m2.

    For the Moment Exercise, m1 is 75g. You need to figure our how big m2 should be in order to balance both sides.

*All lab assignments are due at the beginning of section.
Late attendance to section will result in a 50% reduction in attendance grade.
