Hey Code Red,
For the past week all the teams have been working hard to finish the final designs of their systems and get parts manufactured.
Machining has been working hard to finish all parts for the different subteams. They are almost finished and plan to be done by the end of the day Tuesday.
Assembly team has gotten the majority of the indexer assembled and mounted on the drive train and the climbing winch mounted as well. They are working on getting the axles and rollers installed on the indexer.
Shooting finished their last drawing Saturday night. Now all they have to do is the math to determine the flywheel they need to use.
Acquisition is working on their last few drawings but they are ready to start assembling once parts are made.
Climbing is currently assembling and testing their system.
