Northwestern University Solar Car Team again partners with Cutting Edge Water Jet Service

The Northwester University team traveled to Cutting Edge Waterjet 3/20/13 for component cutting of a specialized corregated carbon fiber material for this years solar car challenge. The carbon fiber material is used as structural frame supports for this solar vehicle and is very unique being obtained from Europe. This alternate design approach, in place of conventional steel and aluminum framing, is intended to give the team a weight savings while maintaining the necessary structural qualities. http://nusolar.org/
