Medicine X – Guest Speaker at Stanford Medical Clinic

Based on the work in 3D printed prosthetic skins and my collaborations with both veterinary medicine and anthropology I was invited by Dr Larry Chu of Stanford University to give a presentation 3D printing as it relates to the future medical practices and education.  I […]

Parametric Shoe Design Project

For this second year undergraduate project, students engaged in the design/development of a shoe design that accommodated for a both style and performance, selecting between to options with the designer identifying with a particular gender.  The first option explored the design of an athletic shoe, […]

Materials Research

Much of my manufacturing work relies on my material testing with various technologies.  This includes laser cutting (large and small formats), 3D printing, CNC milling, etc.  Depending on the function of the project, I almost always engage in material research at the onset to ensure […]

Pendant Light Restaurant Fixture

This two week product project was developed around a conceptual design for a pendant light over a bar height table.  Students were directed to explore inspiration that would connect users to the food through the environment.  3D printing and advanced digital modelling were used to […]

Permian Dragonfly Wing

In collaboration with the Entomology Department at K-State, I developed a recognition plaque in etched stainless steel for Floyd Holmes and Otto Wenger in honor of Floyd Holmes 100th birthday.  Based on a cast of the Fossil Forewing of an Extinct Permian Dragonfly, Megatypus schucherti, […]

Prosthetic Skin for Double Amputee

Taking the previous research in 3D scanning and parametric design farther, Prosthesis 2.0 explores the application of digital fabrication and parametric design in the development and manufacturing of custom prosthetic skins. This work was developed with a prosthetist, who advised on the weight and strength dimensions of the fabrications which were then negotiated […]

Ratchet Strap Furniture

This one week project was designed to develop the students full scale prototyping skills.  Students were given one sheet of OSB and one ratchet strap to develop a piece of furniture for fabrication via CNC milling.  The first day explored concept development and non-scalar model […]

Exhibit Design Studio Project

This design studio project engaged the students in developing a 10’x20’x8′ exhibit for a company/product of their choosing.  Students were required to develop mood boards demonstration their understanding of the brand of the company/product in order to frame the developed construction.  Simultaneously students were introduced […]

Revit Robot

The Revit Robot is an exploration in getting students to coordinate between software and also engage in developing more advanced assemblies for interior and architecture.  The project explored the notions of product at the architectural scale.  Students engaged in developing View Templates which could be […]
