work experience

Redline Laser owner August 2015 -

After many years in the Engineering R&D Field, I founded uni-cam cnc systems in 2007, while there, I designed and manufactured cnc routers, mills, plasma cutters and other custom cnc systems. I have since left uni-cam and decided to pursue a slightly different angle on engineering focusing primarily on reverse engineering. I now own RedlineLaser where I do 3D Modelling, 3D Laser Scanning, 2D laser cutting,3D printing and 2D+3D CAD consulting work to compliment my reverse engineering skills.



I have always worked for my self and essentially began this after coming out of the SADF [South African Defense Force] in '82. I spent 11 years designing and manufacturing several styles of electric and acoustic guitars. At that time, I also designed, built and flew radio control planes up to 1/4 scale. I ran my own engineering business for 35 years or so, first doing general engineering and then design and manufacture of cnc routers, plasma cutters and laser cutters. I love what I do with a passion. In 2015 I decided to leave running the engineering factory and am much happier now working on my own from my studio at home where I do product development, industrial design and reverse engineering on a consulting basis. I Firmly believe that "everyday is my education, no exceptions" I design in Solidworks since 1997 and currently use SolidWorks 2015 and 2016. I use a NextEngine 3D laser scanner with their top end software bundle of Scan Studio and Rapidworks. I am happy to report that I absolutely love their product and am having heaps of fun getting to know and use the 3D laser technology :) ...That's far...



Workstation specs: Hp XW 4600 workstation
Honors and awards: I don't do things for honors and awards but I once won an art competition in 1971... if that counts for anything. The prize was a thick book which didn't please me as I was 10 years old and it didn't have any pictures!
Interests: Geometry, Laser scanning, Design Philosophy, Ergonomics
