No other teams have yet requested help, so the assumption is that things are going according to plan so far. Many teams appear to be conducting work throughout the break, however, in order to reach completion prior to the Paseo Public Prototyping Challenge.
As of the writing of this post, there are no outstanding requests of the track fabrication and process development team, be they for builds or references of anything else.
As stated previously, the current assumption is that during the time period between Paseo and MakerFaire, work will be conducted to refine the 1/12th scale model. Areas for improvement will be identified after the initial build has been completed.
The focus for the track improvement and process development team in the meantime has been on alternative work, such as ideation for possible builds for coming years should they require machines, and investigation into machines in the shop that currently do not run. Not much progress has been made on these fronts thus far, unfortunately.
