The purpose of the BSD Battleship project was to "design, build and test a tennis ball air cannon to compete in a game of ‘BATTLESHIP’ on the football field". This project required a lot of patience. We faced many challenges but overcame them by working together and making sure we were careful and diligent.
The first step was to design brackets to support our cannon. It is important to have supports for a canon to make sure there is the least amount of resistance so the canon won't break.
Printing out the brackets with the correct constraints to fit the PVC pipes was a big challenge. We had to print out our supports numerous times because they were either too big or too small. They were was a lack of precise measuring to make sure there was enough space left to slide the supports onto the canon.
