About me

i am Mechanical engineer currently working as Research Assistant at fablab cept , i am mainly interested in developing product for household needs and development in renewable energy sector ,i am doing fab academy for learning product development techniques ,exploring new ways of prototyping , also to be part of community from whom i can learn and share my knowledge .

My Activities at Fablab cept

 i am working as a research assistant at fablab cept  from last  five month ,my roles and responsibilities are of my  Conducting Machine Training sessions and helping students in operating machines , checking student file and giving them correction in file preperation.

Participation in research project at fablab , we worked at delta clay  printer, i  have contribution in designing parts , assembly of printer  , we used marlin firmware with repetier host for controlling machine movement and grasshopper for slicing

                                                                                   My Previous Projects

Sole Cleaning Machine

All Season Water Tank

Air Power Car Frame

Water heating system

Robo soccer

sole cleaning machine

a machine uses a vacuum suction technique for cleaning  sole of your shoe as when someone stands over it and rub his shoe /sliper machine will start and collect all dust in vaccum cleaner

All season water tank

a tank have three chambers , top one for normal water , middle one for solar heated water , bottom one   for electric heated water , so it is combine model of three things  which will  be install at your roof and save your space for managing  daily water requirement


Air Power Car

car body is design in such a manner that when air blows inside from front section it will make turbine rotate inside the tunnel which are coupled with dynamo hence generate electricity


Water heating system

it is based on thermosyphon phenomenon which is also used in solar heating system so i made this for heating water for cleaning utensils in our college mess so at the time of cooking chapaties we use this setup to heat water as it won't effect on heating require for cooking chapati .

 Robo soccor robot

This i made for robotic soccer competition in our college where i have used dc 12 volt motor to control my bot , we are assigned with task of putting ball in arena using robot jaws ,i use DPDT switches to control my bot .
