Build / Machining
The Build and Manufacturing team takes the CAD drawing and turns it into an actual robot. They use a combination of standardized parts (like nuts, bolts, and hex shafts) and custom-made parts, to build a functioning robot. This is especially challenging because the team has to work within a six week timeframe.
