Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test Phase
- As a team, our plan was to overhaul our existing design and convert it to be composed of 80/20 rather than wood. We also planned on beginning to test and calibrate some of the subsystems.
- As a team, we ordered the materials for our new 80/20-based design and successfully assembled it. We documented all of the steps we took, to organize them into a guide for other people to duplicate our design. We also addressed some of the issues that persisted from our last design iteration.
Design & Build Summary
The reasoning behind our conversion is explained here.
The test rig we have been building can be seen below, alongside our previous design.

Here is what our apparatus will look like once it is finished being assembled.
Bill of Materials
The total expected cost of our apparatus is provided below, adjusting for whether the builder has access to the same devices we do in the machine shop. Some tools must be assumed for construction, such as screwdrivers, saws, etc. While this cost exceeds our customer requirements, our customer has expressed that the budget can be flexible if we are able to incorporate prosthetic arms.

Plans for next phase
- As a team, we plan to begin calibration and testing of our fully assembled apparatus.
- This is our expected progress for the rest of the semester.
- The design change caused a delay in testing which put the team behind schedule for testing around 30 days from the original plan. However, the original plan was created with ambitious due dates. The next phase will be dedicated to completing testing, so that the design will still be complete before imagine RIT.
