This was a team design project for my 24-262: Stress Analysis class at CMU.
My team members were Jason Seepaul and Benjamin Warwick.
Design and build a mechanism that lifts a cylindrical weight, sliding along a vertical post, by at least 2 inches. Teams are limited to using aluminum sheets, a U-channel, a rod, delrin plastic strips, and the provided servomotor and controller. Furthermore, the mechanism must fit in the given course, with no part other than the base (which is clamped to the ground) touching any other surface. It must weigh no more than 20.0 oz.
Here is our crane in action!
