Today we met from about 6 to 8 to finish building the mountain and to do online shipping orders. First we decided to figure out what all we needed to order, and decided on 2 robot encoders (one as a replacement, one as an extra to have), 2 extra servo motors that rotate 360 degrees to use for attachments, extras of the screws that we are running out of, and another usb OTG adapter.
After finishing that, we completed the upper part of the mountain assembly, with only a few difficulties with the fit of bars in slots, and a large amount of problems with fidning the correct screws. Eventually we realized that we had used the wrong screws for specific locations, and that caused us to have to remove the screws and redo parts of our project.
After finishing this we had moved on to assembling the individual parts of the mountain, which went pretty smoothly, however it took forever due to the fact that one person had to hold the bliot, and one person had to hold the nut, but eventually it worked out okay, just taking a large amount of time. We finished up by putting the feet on the back of the mountain, and then our meeting was finished.
