This Week in NUsolar

Updates from the Mechanical Team

Aero shell mold design 

We finished the design of our aero shell molds. They CAD files will be sent to the manufacturer this week and the molds should arrive in around four weeks

Aero shell plan B

In case we can't finish making aero shell using wet carbon fiber layup in time for FSGP, plan B of aero shell building was completed. This method would utilize PVC shell with carbon fiber reinforced ultraboard ribs.
