3D Printed an Engine block – Our class project was to use additive manufacturing to construct a small block Chevrolet engine. Our group was responsible for scanning the engine block and producing a 3D model of the block. I was also responsible for making a Solidworks file of the main caps, and preparing it for 3D printing.

Helicopter design - I had to create a Solidworks model of an apache helicopter with motion.

Music Box: In a group, we had to design and create a music box that would interact with 29 other music boxes that would each play a part of a song when it was trigger. For the project, we had to include different options for creating each part of the music box, their pros and cons, and a cost analysis. The project simulated a real work environment of designing and creating a part that not only functions individually, but as part of a whole final product.

Pedal Structure: Assisted in performing a stress analysis using MSC Nastran and Patran on a pedal assembly for a racecar. We had to see if the structure would survive extreme situations, what the level of safety was, and give any recommendations on how to improve the structure.

Racecar Engineering (Formula SAE): Assisted with designing and transforming a gas racecar into an electric racecar. As a team, we not only had to design and manufacture different components of the racecar, but take into account the restrictions that the chasse and body of the gas racecar gave us.

Bicycle Frame – As a group, we had to apply the finite element analysis to a bicycle frame, so that we could design a light weight structure that still met the required safety factor.

Design Sandwich Panels – We designed a Kevlar-epoxy skin graphite reinforced sandwich panel that had to be under type III ballistic threat for lightweight concealed body armor applications. We built a model of our sandwich panel and performed a finite element analysis to determine that our sandwich panel would not fail under the given conditions.
