File:Backhoe deep dig.skp

  • Did range of motion analysis on the Backhoe 2 legs and finished designing them. I need to clean up the analysis and then I'll post it to the wiki.
  • Finished figuring out the Backhoe 2 base structure: how to mount the legs, where to put some rigidity pieces, etc. I'm getting pretty damn good at sketchup!
  • Started on Backhoe 2 boom range of motion analysis & cylinder mount design.
  • Started on the Backhoe 2 fabrication instructions on paper.
  • Created the pivot base BOM-
  • Upgraded some bulbs in the HabLab to make it brighter.
  • Helped put the roofing on the Microhouse.

I'd love to put some pictures here but it's just too much of a hassle.
