I've Been Framed!

Today my Dad and I went to the Rapid Technology company to get my Cubesat frame. They take digital CAD models and use 3D printing to make actual physical models.  They even reinforced my model Cubesat frame with epoxy and cyanoacrylate, something similar to super glue, to give it strength.  They were so very helpful and showed us tons of examples of what this technology can do.  I learned a lot!

Now that I have the frame, I can start putting all of the electronics into it. I have most of the parts. It will just be a matter of connecting them all and making them work together.  It is going to be a tight fit, but I have confidence that it will all fit.
