Hi, I am an Engineer in Live Oak, TX. I like solving problems and making ideas come to life. Here are a few examples of some gadgets I have made.
3D Printable Exoskeleton test parts. Knee joint. Material: PLA
3D Printable Exoskeleton test parts. Custom shaped gear for elbow. Material: PLA
3D Printable Exoskeleton test parts. 10" length. Stress tested to approximately 50 pounds. Slip tooth gear concept. Material: PLA
My current project is a wireless portable 3D printer that prints on a 6X6 inch printer platform, and will measure in at 6X7X0.5 inches! Check it out on Indiegogo!
WAF stands for Wife Acceptance Factor. I think this should be something that is taught in first year engineering courses!
I concepted this project while my wife was in the hospital recovering from severe hemorrhaging. It was the only thing I could do to keep my mind busy at the time, and keep from breaking down so I could stay focused and take care of things at home while she recovered. I presented this idea to two doctors on staff and received praise from both for my ingenuity.
Similar in application to Lego's, I wanted some blocks that would be useful for prototyping robots. They needed to be light weight and hook together more securely than Lego's. I wanted something I could use for rapid prototyping of robotic frames. Lego, if you see these, please call me for an interview.
Inspired by someone close to me who likes to keep their pills in their pocket. Generally the chemistry of some medications can be altered if kept at temperatures above 29.4 degrees C for extended periods of time. This change in chemistry due temperature can cause some medicines to lose efficacy. Maybe not a big deal for Tylenol, but it would certainly be important for pills regulating more serious problems like, heart conditions, or mental disorders.
This is a fun desk that I built entirely from left over wood scraps in my garage. I built if for a friend of mine for a house warming present.
