Hi Guys & Gals, my name is Gavin
I am a mechanical fitter working for Siemens. I work with industrial gas turbines. Installing, testing and removing them.
I have always had a keen interest in engineering and designing items, be it for work or one of my many hobbies. Fishing and off-road trucking to name a few.
Working at Siemens, where I completed my apprenticeship, I have learnt and used many skills including CAD/CNC as well as mechanical operations. I have been using CAD/modelling software since I was 8 years old and I can say that I am able to model pretty much anything to a high standard.
At Siemens, we have recently developed 3D printed turbine blades using a metal laser sintering process and we have had success when testing. I was not directly involved with the project, however it was very interesting to see and it is nice working for a company that uses pioneering processes such as these.
It's early days for me in terms of 3D printing, however I plan to upload my designs to share them with you good folk as I have been using many of your uploads and I have found some of them to be brilliant.
I would be happy to help with any interesting design problems you may have, just let me know.
I have found that so far, this community is very friendly, helpful and on occasion funny.
Thanks for reading, Happy Printing!
