Due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, many schools have switched to fully remote classes. For mechanical engineering students, machine shop is an essential part of their education, so they have familiarity with how products are manufactured, and so they have the skills needed to build prototypes for their senior design. In order to fulfill this need without breaking social distancing guidelines, students need a way to gain real experience with lathes without going on campus.
