The week of March 28 Project Week 1 brought the Broughal studentst to the Mechanical Engineering CAD Lab located in Packard Laboratory. During their visit the Broughal students met with their Lehigh teammates to see the progress that had been made on creating a virtual CAD model based on their vehicle concept.
In addition, a CAD model of a display base part was created by the Lehigh students to demonstrate the modeling capabilities of the SolidWorks CAD software. The base will be 3D printed by the Lehigh students and used to display their teams show car on Race Day (5/6/16).
Finally, the Broughal students headed off to the waterjet lab where they saw a demonstration of a two-piece rocket being cut from plywood by the abrasive waterjet machine.
