I am a product design engineer who graduated from Swinburne University in 2009. During my university career, i have also worked as an automation design engineer and also learnt valuable life experience through extensive travelling. This portfolio shows the skills i have aquired during my course and employment, using tools such as Solidworks, Solidedge, 3D Studio Max, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Tri-Pod

by Luke Dewar

Tri-Pod Workstation This project entailed the design of a modular and adjustable multiple workstation by a team of three. Our solution uses primarily aluminium extrusion, glass and customisable plastic wall panels to achieve the completely versatile and personal workspace, as well as ensuring the layout is very space efficient. 7


Blind Clock Radio

by Luke Dewar

This product is designed specifically for the blind. The time can be read by touch, with the digits of the clock radio physically moving away from the face of the screen to be read by feel. All the features of this product relate to ease of use for the blind, with large dials and Braille on all controls as well as inbuilt speakers programmed to voice the time or adjusted feature.

Ven - Door

by Luke Dewar

This product is a simple vending machine - complete with refrigeration and 40 cans, a push button release and a portable style, it is ideal for events and private drinks storage and cooling. The product is made from rotationally moulded plastic, with an aluminium rear vent inlay and standard refrigeration components. The front face is made of sheet plastic, moulded with live hinges for simplicity of manufacture.

Disaster Relief Shelter

Disaster Relief Shelter

by Luke Dewar

In the event of an emergency, shelters can be built quickly with different configurations for different uses. Shelter cut from flat eco-plastic board and

Transported easily in large quantities to disaster area

Three different configurations from the same flat sheet

This project involved designing an immediate response shelter that would be easy to transport, quick to build, and as usable as possible for disaster relief situations. This product addresses this need by being highly modular, but a simple shelter that can be constructed in seconds only using the large recycled plastic sheet and plastic locking clips to aid the construction. 17


Xanita Kids Furniture

by Luke Dewar

In a team of two, we designed children’s furniture out of a environmentally friendly cardboard based material as an alternative to the harmful existing alternatives. This furniture is easily cut out of a sheet of this high strength cardboard, and folded into either of three different configurations, a stool, desk, or shelving system. This makes the product highly versatile in many ways for the child and parent.

This furniture, along with highly configurable, has the ability to be fully printed, creating great looking furniture at a low cost to the customer and the environment.

Light Rail Vehicle 20

Light Rail Vehicle

by Luke Dewar

In a team of three we designed a light rail vehicle and system for implementation in 2032, in the suburban satellite city, Rowville. Our vehicle was designed with sustainable materials, manufacturing that could be easily implemented locally to stimulate the economy, and most of all, to suit the needs of the people in this growing city in Melbourne’s outer east.


Light Rail Vehicle

This vehicle also included features such as a cafe, to create value for the users of the system. Significant areas were allocated to bicycle and wheelchair access, both needs identified in the future with an aging population and the need for economical and environmentally friendly transport. Research showed us that existing systems would not be adopted by most, because of lack of convenience. The new routes proposed for this futuristic design ensured no user would have to walk more than 10 minutes to a light rail platform. 22

This project was set by myself with an aim to design and be able to produce a mountain bike stem that is as light and as stiff as existing high end stems. This part of the bicycle is vital as the stiffness translated to the handlebars creates control for the rider.

The outcome is to be made out of aluminium alloy, is easily machinable and is lighter than current stems on the market, with a good stiffness level as proven by significant Cosmosworks testing.
