Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase

Throughout this phase, the team was able to order almost all parts of the BoM list that is required to complete testing and for final assembly. The only pending item is the validity of the motors and the decisions was made to order a single motor to validate design and super imposed the motor onto the different XYZ locations.

The team has listed out the items that were to be completed this phase. The X marks below listed the complete tasks for this phase.

Statstical Analysis

 P18652 T05 Test Plan Statistics

The following above showcases the residuals for the Tension gauge confirming our level of accuracy with the R^2 analysis. Our residuals are normal and have little variation.

T04 Plan

This following test was created to move the extruder platform in at least one direction of motion and ensure that the zero-point does not change too drastically

Decision Matrix

Throughout the building phase, it was discovered that a more powerful supply would be needed to drive the motor. A decision matrix was used to determine the appropriate power supply based on key attributes such as current and price.
