My name is Max Blake, I’m a design engineer.  I design functional parts that solve technical problems, either standalone or as part of a larger assemblies.  My process is all about testing and refining designs until they work as best as possible.  I use both simulated structural testing as well as physical stress testing of 3D printed parts to determine whether they are fit for purpose.  I’m also at home developing custom testing processes to scientifically determine whether designs are fit for purpose.

  • Stress analysis
  • Machine design
  • Prototyping
