Eagle Works moves into fall semester with a productive start. New members are growing accustomed to the engaging and fast-paced atmosphere of weekly work sessions, and their engagement is appreciated.
With a finish date before Speed Week in the summer of 2018, the team’s focus transitions from concept to construction. A 3D model for the car’s structure and cooling systems have been conpleted using CAD software, and more are to follow. Members in the shop proceeded to organize the shop area in preparation for fabrication. Other members continued research efforts to find the most efficient and reliable products to use on the vehicle. Only halfway through the fall semester, and already the car is speeding toward completion.
Below is the CAD model of the frame, batteries, and front-end suspension designed by members Alex Benz, Nate DePutter, Christopher Raatz, and Reece Ticotin.
