Subsystem Build & Test

Table of Contents
Executive Summary
Building the system has officially started. Round 1 of the base has been fabricated. The pouring trays have been submitted to be machined and are expected to be completed within a week. The team has deviated from the original plan and has decided to use a linear actuator to control the nozzle rather than a solenoid. The actuator will be wired directly to a 3-stage rocker switch. This deviation was determined to be necessary as the electrical alternative provided no additional value. Lastly, the stirrer has been tested.
