Advanced Rapid Prototyping DFTG 1175

3 Credits

This course builds upon DFTG 1170 with more advanced project applications. Students will explore simulation and design analysis of rapid prototyping and learn the relationships of physical prototyping to the design industry by examining case studies. When available, field trips to local manufacturing facilities will expose the students to current industry practices and the latest technologies. Several problem-solving projects will test their creativity, design abilities and 3D printing skills. The class environment will foster a design community providing feedback and critique from classmates. Students will receive a refresher on different physical and digital interfaces using a variety of 3D printers and scanners. Lab fee required.
