This week, the function for adding finger joint was improved. Now we can add joint to any edges that have the same length. When the dimention of edge is suitable to add finger joint with the selected material thickness, the finger joint will be added. Otherwise, we will automatically add glue joint to these edges. For the following week, the flexible joint will be added into our system allowing end user to define the joint between two edges with certain angle. This function will greatly enlage the design space for our furniture design.
On the other hand, a great prograss was made to the mechanical logic project. The forced air cooling system was designed to cool the SCP actuators fast. This will increase the life of bistable beam. More tests will be ran and paper is being written this following week.
