Autodesk x Steelcase / 2017


My Role

Exhibit Design Intern / this position called for my design and fabrication to help showcase Pier 9's extensive exhibits that cater to 1500 visitors/year.


Steelcase Computer Monitor Stand

Done using Autodesk's Generative Design software (internally, Dreamcatcher, and commercially available in Fusion 360's "Shape Optimization." I assisted Autodesk's team in 3D printing the extremely fragile parts, as they were mockups of the to-be produced stands printed/cast in titanium. This project proved my ability to ship a product (to London), and to handle difficult manufacturing solutions under deadline pressures.
