Spring 2018 Week 11: Presentation 2 + Finishing the Switch

April 11, 2018

This week, we presented our second presentation for this semester. This presentation proved to be a progress report to the administration to ensure we were on the right track. Angelo started off the presentation by presenting the design specifications and requirements of the track. Bryan elaborated on the manufacturing processes and the dependencies and contingencies of the project. Kevin ended off the presentation by elaborating on the bill of materials, current spending, and the scheduling based on the Gannt Chart. Our presentation can be found below:

On Friday of this week, the team decided to meet up and get more work done on the track. Kevin was in charge of metal bending duties to create the switch and curved sections of the track, while Angelo worked on making the straight components, and Bryan worked on finishing up the support structures by creating the track mounting assembly. While Angelo and Kevin were working on manufacturing the track, Bryan came into some issues with the TIG welder's argon gas supply. The gas tank was empty and we needed a replacement. On the other hand, Kevin finished manufacturing the switch after getting confirmation that the bogey would into our curved sections. An image of the switch attached to the curve is found below:
