Collapsible, Large Scale 3D Printer

Medical professionals and relief workers around the world are faced with new and complex challenges regarding their patients’ health. Additive Manufacturing has the capability to assist with many of these challenges by allowing for more complex medical devices and tools to be created. However, machines capable of such tasks are often too large and cumbersome […]

Pivot Irrigation Misalignment (PIMA) System Project

Pivot irrigation systems are typically a quarter mile long and rotate about a field to irrigate crops. Approximately every fifty meters, there are towers that help move the system. When a tower misaligns, either due to a flat tire or mechanical malfunction, the system’s safety procedure is enabled and shuts the entire system down. When […]

Battery Decay Rate and Life Cycle in Lithium-Ion Polymer Batteries

The objective of the research project is to determine the baseline life cycle and battery decay rate of a lithium-ion polymer battery in drones. The first experiment had the drone statically hovering, which simulated a uniform power draw for a baseline measure. Continuing research tested the battery decay by performing three uniform experiments to completely […]

3D Printing Plastic Recycling Machine

The use of 3D printers is increasing, and it is estimated that by the end of 2018 around 500,000 printers will be sold. With the increasing use of 3D printers comes another problem: the plastic waste that it produces. Typically, consumers throw away the plastic waste. By keeping the circular economy in mind, a sustainable […]
