Course Annoucement:

ME498N / ME599E Winter 2006 Advance Topics in Rapid Prototyping And Rapid Manufacturing ===============================================================

Class Instructor: Mark Ganter Office: 310 MEB Ph: 543-5090 Email: ganter@u

You might think of this course as a follow-on to the RP/RM portion of ME 480 "Intro. to CAE". The course will be a combination of lecture (including guest), laboratory, and projects. The course goal is to expose students to both theoretical and hands-on application of as many of the RP/RM technologies as feasible.

All students will be expected to work on a course project which is aligned with their interest and approved by instructor.

Undergraduates must register for ME498c and graduates must register for ME599c

Topics are likely to include some or all of the following:

CAD/CAE/CAM

Solids Modeling (including in-homogenous) Reverse Engineering / 3D scanning

Rapid Prototyping/Manufacturing Processes Casting CNC Milling Direct Metal Deposition Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Inkjet Printing Investment Casting Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM) Mold & Mold Making Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Solid Ground Curing Stereolithography (SLA) Thermaljet Printing Three-Dimensional Printing

RP/RM Materials
