Score - 8.25
"- Understood the assignment well and the requirements for the mechanism
- Design would work for the needed application
- Parts look easy to service
- Potential issue of unscrewing the fastener holding the parts together, or over-tightening the two pieces such that rotation is not allowed
- Explanation of how the parts are held together is a little fuzzy"
-Love this design idea. Simple parts, easy to understand, and assemble only one way. Looks to be serviceable easily as well.
" + Well thought-out design/explanation
+ Requirements understood
- Parts heavy thick
+ COTS hardware
- Torque control is required for the main shaft/screw
+ Adjustable spring force"
-Could be difficult to assemble
