Project Awesome Reports
Have a ~$50 receipt for various screws purchased from Fastenal, mostly for the optical table.
For lack of incoming funding, the project coordinator (mirage335) feels that any purchase made from these funds must be well planned.
Finally designed the OpticalTableRobot. Similar to the FlexReplicator, supports multiple tools simultaneously. However, this platform is far more rigid (absolute accuracy expected to be <2um across the ~8'x4' work area). Surprisingly, it is also cheaper than a FlexReplicator, thanks to the free table and extrusions.
Julia Longtin has successfully sought investors, and plans to use the robot to manufacture large car parts.
