In order to be laser cuttable, acryllic and delrin were the main two materials considered. Delrin was the go to option to avoid shattering.
To actuate, the following adapted gantry system: [gantry](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/rctgantries) along with this beam design: [beam](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/rctgantries/tree/master/beams) for rigidity.

The main idea is to attach a beam to the linear axis and use it as a carriage to hold fixturing for tensile testing on the top half and compression testing in the bottom half. The gantry system shown above does not supply enough torque, so an adapted version was made shown below.
