Using GrabCAD

There is always another skill out there you can try picking up. I think I may benefit greatly from expanding my skills in model design and computer aided design work in general.

I made and submitted a rough Solidworks part of my left forearm. These measurements, such as length and width at different cross sections, are important in clothing or wearable tech. I posted it on my GrabCAD account. GrabCAD is a great website where you can find CAD files for all sorts of things, to save time on all your designs. I highly recommend giving it a look.

Back in Michigan for the Holidays

 Yesterday morning after getting out of work, I boarded a flight from Boston Logan International Airport to Detriot-Wayne County Airport. I got back to St. Johns, MI, around 9am. My mother and brother picked me up and I slept in the car. After I got back, I sat around and answered a few emails.

Later that evening, I went to see my father at a printing press workshop in town. He was working late with an old friend of his install a hydraulic pump into a cutting press (seen below).

It's good to be home.



NeuDrop Presented

This morning, my team and I in 22.033 (Nuclear Systems Design Project) finished up the final presentations aspect of the course. We were able to successfully win over the judges with our idea of determining soil moisture with low cost neutron detection.

Our reward is a trip to SUTD, a technology and design centric university in the heart of Singapore. I'm looking forward to the trip and what it will bring to me.

NeuDrop Almost To Completion (for 22.033 at least)

 So the reason why I have not posted in a while is partially due to my business with my capstone class, 22.033. My awesome group has been hard at work making NeuDrop happen. It is a novel type of neutron detector cheap and specialized enough to be used in measuring soil moisture content over a wide swath of soil. I'm looking forward to the presentation next Wednesday.

Post-Valentine's Day: Running 26 Miles in 26 Hours

 Yesterday was Valentine's day, it was mostly a normal day like any other. I woke up a bit late behind schedule and rolled into a me...
