Hixson Enterprises Inc. - CAD User

Local entrepreneur is seeking a 3rd or 4th year mechanical engineering student with CAD experience.

Hixson Enterprises Inc. is a new local company that is still within its startup stages. Hixson Enterprises Inc (Hei), is dedicated to sustainable crop production by moving the fields indoors, essentially eliminating environmental impacts on the land. Adam, the founder of Hei, has designed a shelving system that is automated(mechanical) and needs help from an engineering student, to put his design on paper.

A total of six metal parts will need to be designed, prior to Hei being able to seek out a fabrication company. Adam has most of the details of the system worked out within his head, and seeks someone that has the ability to translate his ideas. The complexity of these parts are fairly simple, with predrilled holes and precision welds being about the only crucial points, however, once assembled this machine will be fairly large and complex in nature. The way that the system is designed, smaller modular units can be interlinked and staked, creating a machine however large that is needed, that will work as a singular unit when assembled. Some calculations will need to be determined, just to ensure that materials used in construction are sufficiently strong enough to support the total weight of the machine, once fully assembled and loaded with plants.

The pay for this project is negotiable and will be settled on prior to the contracting of the drafting process. Since a U.S. patent will be applied for once drafted, Hei will ask that anyone working on the project sign a NDA statement before details are discussed about the design. A design that is issued a patent is an excellent item to include within a resume, and would give students a great opportunity to start their portfolio. This is a single project job, and pay will be paid upon completion of the plans, however, Hei has several other ideas that will also need to be conveyed into plans, and an outstanding job on this first project could result in the contracting for the student for future projects.

Anyone interested in possibly accepting the job should contact Adam Hixson by e-mail at bmh334@mocs.utc.edu, with an attached resume for reviewing and elimination purposes. I look forward to hearing from you and are confident that, together we can accomplish whatever we set our minds to.
