We have spent the past few weeks following our design and constructing the system, below are some pictures of the process.  There were a few set back during this stage such as not enough material being ordered, brackets needing relocation, and one member needed to be strengthened.  All things considered we executed our design very well with only minor adjustments.

This week we spent our time taking the custom components that we designed in Solidworks and making detailed engineering drawings for each part.   An example is shown below.  Next week we will focus on finalizing the budget and specifying the manufacturing spec for our system.
