Laser Cutting

This week, Max and Nate had a chance to fabricate some parts on the laser cutter. The two part centering rings and fins were cut and test fit to ensure the system would work. Small adjustments were made for the actual thickness of the plywood being used. In the end, a perfectly fitting fin cluster was created. We are very happy with our aligning centering rings and cant wait to integrate this segment into the airframe.
