  1. Design files and code must be present in the archive in generically readable forms such as DXFs, STLs, etc., as well as in the original editable format (antimony, solidworks, eagle, CAD, etc).
  2. Your files must be hosted in your gitlab repository. Large files, greater than 10 MB discuss with instructor first.
  3. Take photos, notes and screenshots as you work - compress and resize your images for web. Use these to explain and describe what you do. A ‘hero shot’ is the best photo showing your finished project.

  5. Abide by the Commercial Board Policy.
