Faced with limited time and budgetary resources, and even more limited manufacturing experience the team is always looking for ways to do more with what we have. Our current manufacturing methods are limited to traditional composite layups and CNC machining, which are time consuming and expensive.
The Mark One puts design and manufacturing within the reach of all students, regardless of tenure or course of study, allowing them to fully leverage our greatest asset: the collective strength of the team.
“Sometimes machining takes too much time and money, and the Mark One allows us to have even first years take their parts and use them on the vehicle.”
The Mark one provides a competitive advantage and allows the HPV team to offset the time and monetary impact traditional manufacturing methods have. They can create strong end-use parts, that stand up the to grueling trials the team will face.
