1. Optical Table Layout
I had discussed with Koji a way to record coordinates of optical table equipments in a text file, and load to solidworks. The goal is to make it easier to move things around on the table in the CAD. While I have succeeded in importing coordinates through txt files, there is still a lot of tediousness in converting these points into sketches. Furthermore, the task has to be redone everytime a coordinate is added to or changed in the txt file. Koji and I think that this can all be automated through solidworks macros, so I will explore that option for the next two weeks.
2. Vacuum Chamber CADs
Steve will help find manufacturing drawings of the BS chamber. I have completed the ETM chambers, while the ITM ones are identical to them so I will reuse parts for the CAD.
