Summer Week 4 - July 10th, 2015

Using CATIA's all-in-one, we converted our wind tunnel model into code that we could upload to a vertical mill and started making our wind tunnel model a reality. We also have our first parts of the suspension and in the garage. A huge thank you to Cummins and its Experiment Machining Shop for helping make that possible.

Summer Week 2 - June 13th, 2015

This week, everyone learned how to use CATIA for drafting and started preparing to bring material into the Artisan and Fabrication Lab to create parts. The VCU (Vehicle Control Unit), Wheel Controller, and BPS (Battery Protection System) circuit boards were all debugged and made ready to be manufactured. Most importantly, our full size body molds were finished and returned to us.

SOGA Grant

Purdue Solar Racing would like to thank the Student Organization Grant Allocation (SOGA) Board at Purdue for their generous monetary donation! The SOGA Board endeavors to grant funding for student organizations to provide students with events and programs that enhance student life, allow opportunities for leadership and professional development, promote engagement with the Greater Lafayette community, and create a forum for the exchange of information and ideas. Funding from this grant will be used to purchase materials to begin the manufacturing process for our tenth vehicle, Renatus.
