Setbacks and Progress

Last week we experienced a major setback. Our 3D-printer died due to an unknown cause. This was almost a worst case scenario as we rely on 3D-printing for most of our components.

However we were able to find a quick backup solution and were able to outsource the major print scheduled for last week. We are expecting to get our own 3D-printing capabilities back within the next 3-4 days. Thankfully we have most necessary components on hand and it should not cause a lot of problems.

Even during these problems we managed to fit the first satellite with most of our components! Because we were so worried about weight the satellite is now under the lower weight-limit. This is great news as it gives us a lot of freedom for changes and if necessary we can always add some weights.
