The calligraphy robot is a proof-of-concept platform for a high precision combined control system with position and force control. The platform is a gantry system and an end-effector with series elastic actuators. PVT control was utilized to achieve smooth curves without noticeable shaking or jagged lines. This design has potential implications for surgical robots. The Cornell Cup competition required design reviews to mimic a professional engineering process. However, there is a lack of helpful guides to critically approaching the creation of a design review. The Cornell Cup reviews are the analytical basis for a study of choices made during creation and the forces that influence those choices which culminated in a handout guide to help other students improve their design reviews.
