I'm glad you came by. I'm an engineer entrepreneur student in Paris, studying at the Leonardo da Vinci Engineering School and looking to specialize in computer sciences. Coming from California, my international background allowed me to become the head of the DeVinci FabLab in La Defense. I have always been attracted to new technologies and look forward to expand my knowledge everyday.

This project was made during my first year in the Leonardo da Vinci Engineering school. Groups of 6 students were formed to take the place of everyday engineers and work together in order to fulfill a specific need. As computer and mechanihals engineers enthusiasts this project was an opportunity for us to apply our knowledge to meet the requiremetns. Our devotion to the project as a team lead us to explore the world of engineering and materialize our ideas into a concrete project. It represents the beginning of my adventure in the world on engineering.


Wind turbines produce mecanical energy from the wind cinectic energy, to be transformed into electric energy. The biggest advantage comes from the result of this transformation of energy. Where as other methods produce significant ammount of pollutants, the process used in wind power generates very little, and has the edge of being renewable.
Therefore, we were asked to build a prototype of an urbain wind turbine that could be used today to provide a small portion of energy directly to cities. It benefits from the lack of transportation of the energy and therefore reduces emissions. However, the high irregularity of the wind in agglomerations was an issue we had to face.The prototype required to be able to produce a maximum of electric power and still be functional no matter the wind direction. We were requried to apply to some environmental restrictions during conception: 80% of material used need to be recycled.

How we did it

The propeller was modelized using SolidWorks and printed on the MakerBot Replicator 2X. It had many older versions, where we tested performance isolating variables such as height, width, and vertical torsion. After our calculations, making the propeller wider has a greater impact on the rotation, and we found ourself increasing the original size of 200%.
The pole is the core element of the project. Made out of aluminum bars, it is composed of 3 seperate parts we designed and assembled.

Cinema4D pulley model

All the mechanical components are secured in a modified wooded wine box. Inside, plates form a two-level-infrasctructure to insure pole stability with ball bearings. Here's one of the first prototype of pulley we made on cinema 4D. We encountered a problem with the friction of the pulley on the box. In addition, the size of the piece was too great affecting the rotation of the center piece.
Under the cover, the new poulley offers a 7:1 circular ratio delivering 4.8W of energy at 20m/s (44mph).

As my second year project, the goal is to enhance the DeVinci FabLab(w) to expand its usage and reach a greater number of students. I am working with my team on developping the official website of the Leonardo da Vinci FabLab. The main objective is to create a dynamic environemnt for the students and the members of the association where both can interact and exchange on the platform. The main requirements for this assignment are first the creation of a dynamic webpage presenting the laboratory. It will display the basic informations, latest news, the materials available and will overall have the objective of expanding its reach to outside students and companies. Moreover, it will be equiped with a functionality that allows you to connect with your personal student ID to register a meeting with a member to prioritize your 3D impressions, get a certifications from the members to use certain materials autonomously by completing tutorials on the portal and last but not least, students will have an environment dedicated to ongoing proejcts. Private chat room are available at their conveinance, planners, forum, even an online shop where students can rent or buy appliances.

Coming Soon!
