We rented an excavator and dug up our yard in mid-May, 2014. I'll cover what we did in more detail below, but first, why on earth would you do this? Earthworks provide several benefits for food production, including: Dist...

I just finished my second FRC-focused tutorial for SolidWorks and shared it on GrabCAD.  This one covers modifying the 2014 KoP drivetrain to make space for a ball-gatherer.

Tutorial #1 covered assembling a mecanum wheel to a Toughbox Nano and figuring out how to add the right length spacer and retain it to the drive shaft.

Story
Introduction
I'm obsessed with finding a better way to learn and teach things.

I'm experimenting with ways to achieve shorter product development cycles through social media.  You'll see this in my posts, most of which are focused on robotics.

I'm a mechanical engineering contractor.  I bounce around a lot but currently work on antennas that stay pointed at satellites so you can use the Internet while flying over the ocean.
Bragging rights
I mentor an awesome group of young people through FIRST Robotics (http://team2342.org)
