In the first meeting we discussed the concept and divided into two teams; one to make the end effecttor and another to make the mechanis. I was part of the latter.

The team responsible for the mechanism (Me, Asem and Mrehan) we discussed the approach. Asem has built a plotter before and showed us the design of it and we decided to take it as a guide.

We sketched out the mechanism and the parts needed to bed designed for it.

I was responsible for designing and fabricating the carriage of th end effector and the X-axis and helping in the assembly.

I designed a common piece that can be use in both with five mounting points and a belt holder

And assembled it in the mechanism with Asem
