2015 summer semester team F 5thJune 22, 2015


In today’s activity, we cut a frame and stiffening ribs of 2nd prototype by laser cutter.
It is required that these parts have sufficient stiffness. Therefore, we investigated about the material using FEM and chose aircraft grade plywood with a thickness of 2 mm. Because of the thickness of laser spot, it is difficult to fit together frame and ribs, but we found good settings of the laser cutter. From now, we will proceed with making 2nd prototype and make experimental flights.
