About

My name is Michael Gray, and I'm currently a mechanical engineering student at Penn State. I'm affiliated with several modeling programs, including SolidWorks, SolidEdge, AutoCAD, Fusion360, Revit, and Blender. I can make both complex parts for assemblies and models for games, and look for any opportunity to learn.

Having a passion for design from a young age, I have involved myself with 3D printing and manufacturing processes. Additionally, I have a personal interest in physical assemblies, woodworking, smithing, video game design, finite element analysis, and fluid dynamics. I have taken leadership in design projects requiring model assemblies and parameter-based design, including RC cars, furniture, wind turbines, and personal organizers. All of these outlets have allowed me to explore niches of these programs, and are valuable to my work.

If you choose me as a candidate, I will make sure to work with you in every step of the design process. If my services are not to your liking, I will do everything I can to make it right. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to the possibility of working together!
