This is the final report page for the work done by team Phoenix Chavez (Gustavo Garibay & Ascanio Guarini).

Introduction & Final Design Changes

For this project we designed and printed a phoenix modeled after Swarthmore's mascot, Phineas the Phoenix. Our main design and production medium was Solidworks, which allowed for us to easily 3D print our design and iron out any issues with each step in the design process. Originally we aimed to design a phoenix modeled after the Cesar Chavez flag as noted in our project proposal (Project Proposal for the Phoenix), and the goal was to create something tangible that we would enjoy designing. In addition, this project allowed us to further our understanding of Solidworks, which will prove useful in further engineering courses.

We made multiple changes to the initial design building up to our final project. First of all, we did not use the ma
