One of the most significant challenges of the project is funding (check out the budget to see why). Being two unemployed college students, we are heavily relying on outside sponsors for funding or donations in the form of parts and/or services.
This page is dedicated to all the individuals and organizations that have generously donated to our cause. If you’d like to donate anonymously via PayPal, click the “Donate” button on the right. Otherwise, send us an e-mail first at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get your name or logo to display on our list of sponsors.

Autodesk is a world leader in 3D design software for manufacturing, building, construction, engineering, and entertainment. They provide student versions of their software which we rely upon heavily to design the models of our components and assemblies. If you’ve never used an Autodesk product before, we highly recommend you try them out. Check out their website at http://www.autodesk.com for more info.
San Jose State University has provided us with the necessary coursework to complete this project. Without their Mechanical Engineering Bachelor’s degree program, this project wouldn’t exist!
