My name is Greg Lund. I am currently a Junior majoring in both Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I am passionate about all things engineering, from mechanical design, electronics, and programming to aerospace and robotics. I really enjoy learning new skills, so I spend a lot of my free time pursuing personal projects that are way outside of my current scope of knowledge. This website is a way for me to showcase these projects. I have spent countless hours since high school teaching myself new skills like programming, CAD and CAM, soldering, electronics, machining, welding, woodworking and even masonry. Building this website from scratch, in HTML, has been a great way for me to learn more about web development.
I built this freestanding bouldering wall in my backyard so that I could still climb while the gyms were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was one of the first large scale projects that I completed. The project took around 3-4 months with plenty of iteration, but the final product is a 3-axis CNC Router capable of cutting wood and plastics.
Over the course of the past two years I have built two 3D Printers from scratch. The first one was my design and worked suprisingly well. The second printer was made with 3D printed parts from the first and is not my design.
Building this turbine was my Senior Project in high school. I machined all the components on a cheap metal lathe and a drill press. The rotor and disks are made from steel while the casing is aluminum and the inlet is brass. Using compressed air the turbine can spin close to 100,000 rpm!
Here are a few of my smaller projects, or projects that were poorly documented.
For the final project in Intro to Robotics our group decided to built an autonomous, mock battlebot. The goal was to utilize a depth camera to locate and intercept an enemy robot by deploying an actuated arm.
Component Design is a class based upon a semester long project to build a drill powered vehicle to compete in a challenge at the end of the semester. Our group built a scooter built for endurance.
Here are some of the projects I've been working on in the lab as a part of ARPG.
As a part of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium, I work as a member of the Structures Team on the RocketSat-X project. We are building a payload to be flown on a Sounding Rocket in August 2020 to demonstrate a method for passive solar array deployment.
