I wanted to safety test this thing to make sure you could park a subcompact car on it before someone’s grandchildren stand on it.
Rack for baseball bats and helmets, installed in a little league dugout. Slot & Tab sheet metal and square tubing weldment construction, with updates driven by FEA simulation.
Watch a product design become more appropriate for its intent through iterations (lift station / sump hole lid assembly with flanges).
I made these bumpers for a friend’s daughter’s 4-wheeler. Laser-cut 1/8th” plate, sand blasted and powder coated.
This Time They’re Round! A very nice person contacted me and asked me to design a round vent cover for her kitchen.
Prototyping & Reverse Engineering examples from my 3D CAD employment and real-world experience. Includes a Flat Panel TV & DVR Multimedia Stand modeled from a hand drawn note (prototype), and a part from a pair of Livestock Tagging Pliers that I had to model for a CNC Machine Operator (reverse engineering).
A fun project designed in SolidWorks, the detailed plans for this Fire Pit Table are available for free download (PDF format). If you have access to a metal fabrication shop, you can get this made.
At work someone asked me to design a “Cold Air Return Vent Cover,” 9 7/8″ x 11 3/4″. I had fun with it, and decided to post photo renderings of the designs. (Created in SolidWorks 2009).
