I apologize for my lack of project updates for the past few weeks, several other projects have popped up in the meantime that needed my attention. Being this is essentially the last week to get our video together I will be focused on documenting the overall system architecture, and  will be overhauling the project documentation to reflect where we are currently. 

My estimated timeline

8/11 - System Architecture block diagram
8/12 - Electrical BOM for PCB (This will be a preliminary list)
8/13 - X-xis drive CAD model finalized 
8/14 - X-axis drive design 3D printed
8/15 - Y-axis drive design completed
8/16 - Y-axis drive design 3D printed
8/17 - Prototype Assemble

8/18 - Video shoot and editing 

Unfortunately we will not have the funding to fully build the prototype by the video submission deadline, but will continue building up the prototype and will hopefully have a fully working prototype by November.
