ExoCube Pushing Forward!

A particularly exciting and educational aspect of PolySat’s comprehensive production process is the design and in-house manufacturing of various structural components.  ExoCube, PolySat’s most recent project, implements a modification of the flight-proven and student-designed HyperCube structure that was recently flown as a 1U form-factor for the IPEX mission.  To increase educational benefits and expand the technical capabilities of the PolySat lab, many of the components used within the ExoCube mechanical structure have been manufactured by PolySat students using Cal Polys on-campus machine shops.  For the past several months, the ExoCube mechanical team has been working to finalize design and manufacturing, and we are excited to have finalized hardware that has been machined in recent weeks!
