Fabrication is Key

Team PivoRest is hard at work making our second prototype. Today in class, we made a new mold to bend the plastic around once heated and designed a way to distribute the weight of the armrest on the pivot point. This will decrease the torque and put less pressure on this crucial piece. Moving forward, we will continue to work on our prototype. We will be meeting over the weekend to fabricate the piece to distribute weight.
