Not all prototypes can be composed of a single material, and some require the construction of a metal frame or other components out of steel or aluminum. To compliment the use of additive manufacturing, this prototyping lab project teaches through hands-on training the necessary basic knowledge to properly join and machine metal parts. The curriculum will cover the proper means of joining components with welding, adhesives or standard fasteners as well as various ways of machining through cutting, turning, milling and drilling.
At the end of the lab course project, participants will have used their skills in metalworking to create their own tool that is commonly used in prototype construction.
Registration for the Lab Groups can be done by choosing one of groups available below:
Throughout the semester, independent projects can be built in the campus rapid prototyping lab with the use of large format 3D printers, soldering irons, lathes, milling machines, welders and much more.
