Welcome to the homepage of Lucas Meranda

My name is Lucas Meranda and I am currently a junior at NC State pursuing a bachelors in mechanical engineering. I chose mechanical engineering because I have always had an interest in designing things and solving problems. After my first introduction to CAD software, I knew I wanted to find a career that would allow me to design systems using technology and be involved first-hand in and creating a better product. I love the challenge a problem presents and hope to use my analytical skills to help a company progress and move forward into the future.

I currently work at Cary Audio Design as a CAD drafter. I started with the company 7 years ago as a shipping manager and after proving to be a very hard and efficient worker, have moved throughout the company filling several different positions. Througout my time as a CAD drafter I have gained over 3 years experience with Solidworks and 1 year of Autodesk Fusion 360 experience. My capacity as a CAD drafter involves using CAD software to help the owner design and create 3D models of current and future production amplifiers. The 3D models and drawings are then used by our third party metal fabricators for their production runs. It has been a rewarding experience being involved in the process from design, creation, and receiving of the finished product. It has also allowed me to see first hand the responsibility of having confidence in your work and efforts as entire production runs and large sums of money depend on accuracy and attention to detail.
