Week 13 UpdateThis week's focus was on completing our models for the semester, and preparing for our third presentation. David continued his focus on the junction and trying to get that finished before the third presentation. Evelia worried about the column assembly that needed to be rebuilt after Futran's files failed to give us proper simulations. However, we fell behind on analysis due to some collisions and interference within our assemblies. We were not able to deliver as much as we would have liked to on the presentation, but we are happy that most of our designs are being finalized.
In the presentation we mentioned that our design for the third rail and track system is now finalized. the junction is pretty close to completion. As we mentioned during our presentation, our goal for the end of the semester is to have all analysis finalized to support our design so that we can focus our attention on redefining and optimizing our own designs the following semester. Below is the presentation we put together.
