After having tested everything I needed to test with the first prototype, https://alejandro-pina.com/2021/06/15/battlebots-prototyping/ , I designed a second one to further develop the design. I also took it upon myself to create an animation for the MK.2 prototype design. So far I have designed the first version of MK.2 and am in the process of […]
The 2020 Graduation Robot https://alejandro-pina.com/2021/02/19/project-cap-and-gown-2020/ was a success and people liked it so much that they wanted to use it every year moving forward with or without the virus.

There are multiple obvious reasons for having excess renders and images from multiple projects. I just thought it would be nice to compile all of mine into one place. Here, you may see my accumulation of miscellaneous/failed renders and images during or after various projects. Enjoy!
This is the first design/engineering related thing I did at Cal Poly Pomona https://www.cpp.edu/ which is worth mentioning. The project was just for my intro to engineering lab class and it was to make a 3D model of some item in your house then make drawing(s) for it. I chose to make the floor lamp […]
So during the pandemic and nearing the 2020 graduation, Bosco Tech https://www.boscotech.edu/, my high school, was trying to decide how to safely host graduation for the seniors graduating that year (I was one of them). At some point one of the instructors pitched the idea of using the robot to hand diplomas to each the […]
There are enough articles already describing what we did so I’m just going to go over this briefly. It all started when one of my instructors reached out to me for help with designing a face shield. I agreed to help since at the time I had nothing better to do. While I was making […]
If you aren’t familiar with what a CADathon is, it’s basically a competition in which several teams or individuals compete to design something in CAD in a short period of time. In the case of the biannual F4 CADathon it was to design a full FRC https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc robot in just a week (Usually 3 days but I guess […]
