Well, its progress. That thing is 10’ 6". THEN we plan on mounting a manipulator on it that’s a little under 4’ … so this thing’s gonna be HUGE! And if any of you were wondering… no we don’t have our freshman holding that up. The linear bearings were clamped at the base for the photograph and it holds itself up pretty nicely. Once we get the mechanism to lift it finished i’ll post another (and hopefully more final) picture.
As a reference, I’m the one in the back with my face blocked by our mentor with the beard. I’m about 6’ 2" and this thing humbles me lol.
