I'm extremely proficient with my skills in the Autodesk Inventor Professional series, as I use it frequently on my F.I.R.S.T. robotics team #1126 Sparx (being the head designer for my individual Drives sub-team).

Lead Designer for Mechanical Drives Sub-Team
F.I.R.S.T. Robotics, Team: #1126 Sparx
800 Five Mile Line Road Webster, NY 14580
Although the start date was January of 2012, this was my first year on the team as a High School freshman student. I had to work my way up the ranks, (just as how you would do in a real job) to become lead designer for my sub-team. First starting off as not knowing what Computer Aided Design even was, to at the end now I've become a master at the program. I'm currently teaching younger/newer students on the team how to use the program so when all the seniors including myself leave and go off to college, they will be very good at using the program. This way they can use their skills they learned to help the team out greatly.

This is a project i did over the summer as i really wanted to enrich my CAD skills for my FIRST Robotics Team: #1126 Sparx. It was very complicated and probably took me well over 60-65 hours to design. Basically I wanted to design a model rocket that was very different from the average everyday one. I thought how boring it was to see a parachute deploy from the second stage of the engine, and then slowly watch it fall back down to earth. I wanted to be able to control it! Takes off like a rocket and flies like a plane, couldn't of said it better myself! I can actually build it in real time, because I have all the materials which is really exciting! I'll now explain how it works... Something called a receiver takes input (wirelessly through an antenna and a 27.555 Mhz analog signal) from a controller a user would hold in their hands. The receiver is powered by 4 AA Batteries, (as I modeled everything you see as close as a 1:1 ratio as I could get it by using a digital caliper, to measure lengths of sides). When you press buttons on the controller it sends inputs to the receiver. Two servos are then connected to the receiver (in two seperate channels). Signals are then outputted to them from the receiver and they move in the direction the user indicates, which controls the lift of the rocket. Can't wait to be an engineer someday as I've always had the right mind for it, constantly designing things in my head, putting things into CAD. I love what I do, so please vote for me as #1. Thanks, so much everyone and I hope you have a great day!
