If you can imagine it I can make it real.

The shelter below was designed by me to my brief.

I wanted a smoking shelter that would protect everyone in it from the wind and rain.

Casting design for packaging

I designed the oil and coolant housing to locate a bought in oil pump, with a bought in coolant pump, to fit a Caterpillar diesel engine.

The design was approved by Caterpillar, and the supplier, and an order was placed for 10's of thousands of parts.

Reverse engineering assembly

The assembly below is a vacuum furnace.

 

It is a copy of a prototype machine built by Cambridge University scientists.

 

My job was to copy the machine in CAD, create drawings for the production of piece parts and input the bill of materials into a company database.

Housing design

I have found that most people have difficulty visualizing the actual design when viewing 2d drawings.

3d cad renderings will help you understand the proportion, feel and function of the space or part or assembly.

Universal house model

The model below is generated from a universal house model I created. It is built the traditional way with bricks and mortar. The model allows for a bill of materials to be created listing every brick, breeze block, window and doors. The concrete floor and mortar materials models can be used to calculate the volume of materials used.

SIP house

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). ... Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labor

Below is a SIP house I modeled to get the angles for the roof joints.

Special purpose machines

I designed this years ago when I was toolmaking.
I started with a paper sketch which I developed with production engineers into AutoCAD drawings of parts.
I made the machine and it was still used in production 10 years after I finished it, having tested 10s of thousands of cards.
