Problem Statement

The purpose of this project is to design an automatic pizza cutter that can cut any normal sized pizza into different amounts of slices. The pizza cutter will ideally cut the pizza in under 60 seconds and into even slices. The goal of this pizza cutter is to provide a simple tool to use in households as well as restaurants. Our design will feature a blade that cuts across the pizza. After each cut, the pizza will rotate a specified amount, based on the desired number of slices, cut again, and repeat this process until it has completely cut the whole pizza.
