Integrate (in't it great?)

As our project comes to its conclusion, it's time for all the teams to coordinate and build the
final machine. The build team and electronics team are currently figuring out how everything will be placed inside the printer, so all the parts and devices will run smoothly. The power button has been soldered to wires, and we have successfully integrated a MOSFET (a type of transistor) into our power supply circuit, since multiple voltages will be used.
As the school year starts coming to an end, we hope our project will be ready to print and present as soon as possible. To do this, we will have to create our final circuit design and figure out how it will fit in our machine, as well as test our software with the completed machine. Now more than ever, this project is a team effort.​
