Get Ideas Turned Into 3D Models


Here at the MakerLab many of our gurus are quite skilled in digitally designing an order to the customers satisfaction. Just recently we had two of our lab designers, Clark Csiki and Yazmine Carbajal, help an engineering company to design a conveyor system. Clark and Yazmine are both juniors here at Illinois studying Industrial Design. Clark’s passion for design process originally drew him to the MakerLab. Yazmine hopes to use her knowledge gained at the lab to design medical devices for transplant patients. Both are a great addition to the MakerLab and love to turn 2D designs into 3D designs. Which is exactly what they did in designing the conveyor system. Using a software known as Solidworks, Clark and Yazmine were able to turn the company’s 2D computer-aided design (CAD) of the conveyor system and convert it into a 3D digital model. Clark and Yazmine worked closely with representatives of the company to make sure that the design order meet all of requirements. Frequent meetings occurred between the designers and the representatives to clear up any questions and to keep on track with the time frame. Once our designers completed the model to the customers satisfaction, they sent it off to get 3D printed! Clark and Yazmine did a great job in designing this order!
