Hello! My name is Wilson Holmes and I am a Junior Computer Engineering Undergraduate student at Michigan Technological University. I am a MOST lab assistant, and am very passionate about robotics and programming. Currently I am working under Shane Oberloier and Professor Joshua M. Pearce to develop low cost metal 3D printing.

Brief Biography[edit]

I am from the Grand Traverse area in lower Michigan. I currently go to school at Michigan Technological University and am working on my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering. I am planning on continuing to get my masters as well. I previously worked at Verified Path Machining where I used CAD and operated CNC lathes. I love the Keweenaw, skiing and snowboarding, robotics, and programming.

Current Projects[edit]

Building a 3D printer with a core-xy motion platform, and a direct drive extruder (E3D Hemera). Runs on 8-bit electronics based on an Arduino Mega 2560 and a RAMPS 1.4 board.

Work Experience[edit]

Past Employment

  • Verified Path Machining
    • Beginning of Summer 2016 - End of Summer 2018
    • Reverse engineered a grout swivel and other related drilling parts with Fusion 360, then operated the CNC machines that the parts were produced.


I love playing acoustic guitar and singing. Photography, video editing, PC gaming, and programming also interest me. I also ski, skate, and snowboard... I love the winter!
