Researched print-quality and reliability issues with the Ember printer. The ember printer is a stereolithography 3D printer that uses a DLP projector. Conducted experiments...more and developed mathematical models aimed at understanding key failure mechanisms in Ember prints. Created a test rig for measuring the motion of the z-axis linear drives in Ember. Designed, CNC machined, assembled the rig. Also wrote software for logging data and did analysis on the motion data.
Python · This tool is for making meshes in the real-world out of something that creases. Like paper.
What I Do
I write programs that deal with shapes. Shapes are my favorite. At the moment I am interested in fun computational geometry problems, staying pragmatic, ecology and evolution. I have made various generative art projects using programming and a mesh-unwrapper that runs in Rhino.
Created a cad plugin called rhino-unfolder, which allows users to unwrap meshes for manufacture in sheet-metal or plastic.
Designed, machined, and built a rig for measuring the motion of linear drives at the micron resolution. Built software for collecting and logging data. Did analysis of the data and performed experiments on linear drives.
Experimented with genetic programming and simulations of coral growth with python.
Took Nonlinear Dynamics: Mathematical and Computational Approaches online course, did assignments in Julia (new scientific computing language), it was a great experience!
