Featured Maker and Robotics Educator Sabin Mathew

We recently had the chance to interview Sabin Mathew, a leading YouTuber and educator in the Indian maker community. His educational content makes sophisticated design and complex engineering concepts accessible and engaging, encouraging more makers to take on new challenges themselves.

Sabin’s videos and challenges are popular because they spark curiosity and deliver conceptual knowledge in an easy-to-understand way. His YouTube channel Lesics, has more than 6.5 million subscribers.

“For me, SOLIDWORKS isn’t just a tool; it’s an integral part of my workflow. Whether I’m developing a new robot or evaluating mechanics, it allows me to create precise models that I can test and refine in real time,” says Sabin.


From YouTube Engineering Challenges to Educational Courses

Sabin has been using SOLIDWORKS for many years, using it to develop educational experiments for his YouTube videos and educational product development. “It’s a tool that brings our engineering challenges to life,” he explains. He has successfully developed two robots using SOLIDWORKS, including a crawling robot that crawls with just one electric motor and performs better than the normal crawling robot, which uses two electric motors. He also created a robotic design course based on the process of developing the crawling robot.

Through his popular videos and online courses, viewers can see the practical applications of theories, such as the mechanics behind the London Tower Bridge or the intricate movements of a robot’s leg.

According to Sabin, “This kind of innovation is possible because of the robust features in SOLIDWORKS, allowing us to refine and perfect mechanisms digitally before physical trials.
