Machining Aluminum Parts for Solar Array ...

ShopBotter John Rucker and his company Solar-Current ( are developing a solar generator described as a Mobile Solar Array (MSA). Solar-Current uses their ShopBot Buddy® to machine some of the aluminum parts for the MSA prototype.

John recently made a short video of the machining of some aluminum parts that is interesting and instructive. [Click on the image below or here to view the video.]

Solar-Current hopes to have their MSA in production by the Spring of 2011. You can follow progress of the project on the Solar-Current facebook page, where there are more pictures and videos.
