During the Summer of 2014, I worked as an intern for Voxel8, a start-up company that came out of the Lewis Research Group at Harvard University. My role in the company was to help develop a platform to print 3D electronic circuits. Over the course of 3 months, I used SolidWorks to design simple devices that consisted of a plastic structure and conductive ink traces. I also tested a platform for 3D printing dual materials (PLA/ABS plastic + Conductive Ink) by working extensively with GCode, and helped fix and calibrate the first three 3D printer prototypes from Voxel8. I concluded my internship by 3D printing a functional device with vertical conductive ink traces.
