Additionally, Anthony Tedesco earned sixth place in the rapid prototyping – assembly category of the Mechanical Drawing Division for his 3-D printed and assembled steam engine.

Both Huff and Rhodes utilized the computer-aided-machining software MasterCam to design their projects and a computer-numerical-control (CNC) machine to create the pieces for their projects. To create his project, Coy used the computer-aided design software Inventor 2016 to create a drawing of the various pieces of the spray gun. Tedesco used Inventor to draw his steam engine and create STL files, which were sent to the 3-D printer. 

The 88th Annual MITES Professional Development Conference and Student Project Competition was held May 11-14 in Lansing. The MITES student project competition features 14 divisions. Each division is divided into several categories. Students who earn a first through fourth place prize in their division and category at a regional competition advance to the state competition.
