P20395: The Martone

Build & Test Prep

Team Vision for Build & Test Prep Phase

In this phase of MSD2, the team worked on finalizing unfinished designs from MSD1 and transitioning to the testing phase of MSD2. From MSD1, there were some unfinished mechanical designs that have been completed during this phase. Additionally, almost all parts needed for testing in phase 6 have been ordered and/or have already been recieved.

Phase accomplishments:

Mechanical Design Finalization

Due to the large workload of the mechanical design work, the continuous requests for more systems by the customer, and the single ME on the project, the detailed mechanical design of the Martone has only just been finalized. Below are various views of the Martone Assembly showing form, fit, and function: Cross Sectional View at Line of Symmetry: Upper Martone Exploded View: Lower Martone Exploded View:

Eventually a separate Edge page will be dedicated to describing the mechanical design philosophy/assumptions/process/features and dimensioned drawings. Although this should ideally have been done this phase for MSD, it does not hold back testing and assembly. The most important models/drawings(touchscreen related) are finalized and ready for lasercutting; 3D models do not need drawings to be printed; and CNC step files are made and ready for a run.

Risk and Problem Tracking

Open Risks

The table below represents the risks that the team has to deal with through out the life of this project. The risk register can be found here

The picture below represents the risk waterfall until the end of the semester. Much has not change if we compare it to the one in phase 4. The only element that has increased is the likelihood of Phase 5 down because we have added new risk items.

Closed Risks

As the project goes on, some of the risks have been closed because they did not apply anymore to the project.

Cabling Diagram

The LED PCB from the previous phase has been changed due to cost constraints. The design itself remains the same, however the PCB has been cut in half, making the new PCB much cheaper to fit the budget. Two different PCB's have been made for the left side and the right side which will be put together as shown in the cabling diagram. The schematic and layout files can be found here.
