3D Modeling and Printing
Inst: Ken Youseffi
In the future you will be able to customize a digital product online for manufacture in your home, your office or a retail store. We are on the front end of a revolutionary wave in 'design-to-product' which may even have extraordinary medical applications, including 3D printing of replacement parts for people.


In today’s engineering design field, engineers create a digital (3D) model of a product for presentation, analysis and simulation, and often build a physical prototype for further study. In this course, the concept of three dimensional modeling and Rapid Prototyping (RP) will be introduced. Students will learn to draw a 3D object using the software package SolidWorks, and be introduced to 3D printing methods (Stereolithography, inkjet, FDM) using powder and plastics. Teams of two will design a product using SolidWorks and build a physical model using FDM machines (Fused Deposition Modeling) to take home.
