    A type of fishing reel known as a baitcasting reel has a handle with several gears linked together to turn the main spool. The system of gears also turns a bar at the top of the reel known as the "worm gear" which allows the pin at the top of the black line guide to move along the bar and keep the line from building up at one point on the spool.

  • The development of a redesigned variable turbine turbo charger. This turbo charger would most likely be seen on an automobile but similar turbos are also found on boats and airplanes. I chose a variable turbine turbo because it does include more parts and design aspects than other models. This type of turbo includes moving veins that alter the airflow around the turbine to create a more even and efficient exhaust flow into the turbo. I also included a wastegate, this controls boost pressure by releasing excess exhaust gas bypassing the turbine to reduce over-heating and compression. 

               Some of my favorite parts to construct were the compressor and exhaust housings and the compressor turbine. I also thoroughly enjoyed designing the variable vein feature. The snail-shaped housings were drafted using two circles of different diameter on planes with slight difference in angles. These circles were swept together as they were normal to a larger circle connecting the two. These were hollowed using the same technique with a sweep cutout. Extrusions and ribs construct necessary detail.The compressor turbine included slight complication, but allowed a learning experience. Starting with a circular disk with a cylindrical protrusion in its center, I sketched a thin closed curve on the disk from the center. I then sketched a curve in the opposite direction on the plane normal to the disk, starting in the bottom, center of the cylinder. I was able to perform a parallel sweep that created the first blade. That blade was patterned, and a revolve cutout achieved the desired shape.

  • A team of five members from Michigan State University did a final project in their Graphic communications class. Four of us our mechanical engineers while one is an applied engineer. We are all currently sophomores. Our NX project is a fishing pole reel we designed each part and assembled it on NX. The motion of the reel is when you push the button down it allows it to hit the spring letting loose one of the bottom housing. This motion is to allow the line to be let loose so you can cast it. Another motion is being able to spin the handle which reels in the line.

    Our Fishing Reel assembly includes a solar powered sensor. It consists of a typical fishing reel and one sensor. This sensor comes with 30 hooks that also have sensors on them. The addition lets the fisherman know if their bait is still on their hook when their line is in the water. It senses the weight of the worm, or bait of choice, and will show you a picture of a hook on the screen. When there is no bait on the hook, i.e. the bait falls off in the water or is taken by a fish, the hook on the sensor's screen will appear as just an outline of the hook. When it  does sense weight on the hook, i.e. the bait is still on the hook, it will appear as a solid black hook. This attachment benefits fishermen so they know if their bait is still on their hook and don't waste time believing that it is still there.
