Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Aug 2016 - Mar 2017 (7 months)
Throughout my time at Clarke Rendall my main task was to create 3D renders and visual aids to help the clients decide which designs they would like the most. Once those renders were approved I would then go on create full construction drawings for production and use Biesse Works to programme any CNC parts.
I was directly involved in site surveys to gather dimensions to make sure that all furniture made would fit and record all site access information. I would also be contacting clients to gather information needed and create mood boards to help clients with their design ideas.

CAD Engineer, Greengate Furniture, High Wycombe (Full time Job) 2014 – 2016
I was the lead designer at Greengate in creating new sofa & chair designs for clients such as Ralph Lauren, David Linley and other high end interior designers.
I also helped with photography, including taking the majority of photographs in the current Greengate catalogue and many for their products.
I was directly involved in manufacturing, including using CNC machines to route out the frame work, helping assemble frames and getting them ready for upholstery.
The main software packages I used were Solidworks, Keyshot and the Adobe Design Suite. I also learnt to use SigmaNEST, a nesting programme used to route the parts out.
My proudest achievement was seeing my work displayed in Harrods and also designing for David Linley. I finished work for Greengate on the 7th of April 2016.
