Welcome to ME316 Systems Design for Spring 2015
The Machinescape project is a collaboration between Sena Clara, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at WSU Tri-Cities, and the ME316 Systems Design class taught by Jacob Leachman, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at WSU Pullman. Joining the surreal form of the fine arts and the mechanical complexity of engineering, the Machinescape seeks to build a naturally natural voyage through space and time.
After breaking up the proposed system concept into separate subsystems and teams, each individual team set about designing several optional designs for their respective subsystems. These preliminary designs can be found under the links below.
Once we presented several of our subsystem design ideas to Sena Clara, we selected the best design that would fit with the original concept. Once we had these designs selected, we began the process of refining, building, and testing these designs. The final design prototypes can be found in the links below.
