This week I was working on the wire bender project started by a previous intern. The electrical wiring was already done and parts were already 3D printed and half way assembled. Assembly needs to be done and the code uploaded and tested. I first needed to find a copper tube with a 15 mm diameter. This proved to be difficult to get ahold of so I went with a 16.5mm tube. Because some of the parts were printed according to have a 15mm diameter opening, they all needed to be readjusted and printed. New bearings were placed as well to accommodate the change in diameter as well as the tube being sanded to provide a tight fit.
