This is one of the most used tools here at the lab. The 3D Printer has been extremely useful in the development of the projects, specially the Telebot since it is a quick method of developing parts and testing new concepts. Thanks to this machine we were able to develop a working hand and visual system for the Telebot, plus a great array of power improvement and space holding pieces for other systems. The same design files can be used when creating the pieces out of metal, giving the machine an even greater number of uses.
The projector is of great use when having presentations or meeting at the Lab and we need to show a concept through Power Point or video. It was specially of great use for the series of indoor presentations we held back in July, where each team presented their concepts for their projects.
