Our next step was to complete the platform for our cannon that could operate z-axis, and y-axis rotation (angle elevation, and 360 rotation). So to approach this we began with first outlining the concept for our design.
Using our Onshape skills we took our idea to the board, and began our design process to print the pieces on our shop bot. Our constraints were that the design could only utilize, at most, a 4x4 ft piece of material wood.
We consulted with Mr. Twiley, and presented this early design, remarks were given to add strength to design through the use of notches as means of attaching parts; rather than smooth surfaces attached just by glue.
With our cannon completed, we took our projects outside and put them to the test; and with this celebrated the success of our hard work as a class tackling this project, and as a team showing off our ideas coming to life.
