A team alumni is coming back to teach about CAD drawings. During build season, when the CAD model of the robot is finished, "drawings" of all the parts have to be made so we can show the machine shop exactly what to build. Making drawings is something that all team members traditionally help out with, regardless of what area they are assigned to. This is an important meeting for everyone to attend.
