Goals: [edit]

  • Determine piston and placement
  • Start CAD design for elevator
  • test feasability for brake for carrige

Accomplishments/Creations:[edit]

  • Progress in CAD
  • Determined cylinders for moving elevator
  • re-designed assembly to not require latch
  • We've been testing a different method of pivoting the elevator which would make the mechanism a latch to hold it upright.
