Machine

For the final project of IPD501: Integrated CAD/CAM/CAE, I worked in a team with five other students to design and manufacture a working telesecope. The design was divided into three main components: 1) the tripod/base, 2) the internal focusing mechanism, 3) the tube and eyepiece. I worked predominantly on creating a tripod that was not only stable but also transition smoothly during height adjustments.
