RPI Forge

Volunteering with The Forge

The Forge provides a collaborative environment for students of RPI to explore rapid prototyping and design. There is a wide range of equipment - including but not limited to 3D printers, a laser cutter, and an electronics workstation. As a volunteer, I worked with many students to get them acquainted with equipment or software so they can bring their designs to life. Along with assisting others, many personal projects and collaborative projects were fulfilled through The Forge.

A personal project to add custom lights into a clear Nerf blaster using RGB strips and an Arduino Nano. It is programmed to count ammo through embedded limit switch.

Collaborative Project with DANG! to produce 3D printed models of drones from their game I/O Interloper. In total, 25 were produced and handed out at E3 2018 in Los Angeles.
