Hardware



Here is my portofolio of mechanical and electrical projects.

Here are some of my favourites. 👇





UW EV Challenge

I was on a team that built and raced 2 electric cars over 3 years. I worked on several components including expanding the battery capacity and making body panels.

Arduino Timer

The Code

Conveyor System

A modular conveyor system that efficiently transports and sorts anything with scannable barcodes. I designed the drive system and collaborated with my group on writing technical reports and presenting our design.

Phone Stand

This is a folding phone stand I designed by first sketching different ideas, then making a model in SolidWorks, and then 3D printing the final result.

PCB Stand

I designed and 3D printed this stand to help with soldering components to the board in the labs for one of my courses.

Can Crusher

Here is an aluminum beverage can crusher design that I made in SolidWorks. The design is very minimalist and it can fit any can the size of an Arizona Iced Tea or smaller.

FIRST LEGO League

For 5 years I was on a team that competed in the FLL robotics competition. Our last robot (below) won the provincial robot design award for its modular design.

Table

I designed this table as my first project using Autodesk Fusion 360. The design is simple and easy to build, using only a 4'x8'x3/4" sheet and some 1x4s and 4x4s.

Snowflake

I designed this snowflake in AutoCAD and then had it laser-cut.

Rocket

A partner and I designed and built this rocket to fly to a max height of 23m. We did our calculations using Excel, and it flew to 23.17m.
