MonkeyBot, in Pixels

This Thursday’s meeting was particularly productive. The body group and passive claw group finalized their designs for laser cutting tomorrow. The Mechanical Engineering Shop got a hold of a brand new laser cutter and we’ll be the first students to produce parts with the machine.

Here is what the bot will look like:

Also the active claw group has modeled a feasible bi-stable, simply actuated claw.
