An undergraduate technical elective focusing on methods of 3D precision production. Through a series of assignments and site visits to commercial production facilities students are familiarized with the language of industrial production. Students are exposed to 3D modeling and digital manufacturing techniques such as CNC, laser cutting and stereo-lithography printing. Assignments focus on technical problem solving and understanding material capabilities. Students learn technical drawing, scaled model building, semi-precise metal working, jig/fixture design and rubber molding. This course provides a conceptual basis for understanding 3d digital production methods. There may be a class fee assessed to your student account.
