Streamline your project through additive manufacturing and design. Incorporate a pure mechanical design or electro-mechanical elements like micro-controllers, micro-computers, PCBs, or sensors.  

Otto | Intelligent Planter System

The goal of this project was to develop an automated system that monitors temperature, humidity, light, and soil moisture levels. Using an Internet of Things (IOT) framework, our team developed a system to stream data to an Online dashboard platform. The system, which runs off of solar and battery power, notifies the user when various actions occur, like increase in temperature or low soil moisture levels. With adaptability in mind, the solar panel was designed with threads so different models can be attached in the future. Lastly, the device was designed so the enclosure lid can be easily and efficiently removed.

3D Printed Fly Fishing Rod

The aim of this project was to develop a 3D printed custom fishing rod for practical or entertaining purposes, like practicing to fish or playing with a cat. In the latter scenario, a cat toy would be mounted at the end of a string so the user can reel or maintain tension as the cat tugs on the toy. Additionally, a bail can be flipped to release the tension if necessary. The constraints and tolerances of the 3D printer is taken into account relative to the design so that each component fits as the design intended. For example, the reel spin should be as smooth as possible and the reel knob should not be loose enough to fall out.

Floating Road Sign Mount

The aim of this project was to create a sign holder that looks as if it were floating with no screw hardware. Using precise measurement tools, our team measured the intended sign and developed custom 3D printed hardware. The model was designed for a drywall screw to go through and sit flush so it doesn’t interfere with the sign itself.
