3D Printing, Reverse Engineering and Rapid Prototyping: Strategies in Industry

Since 1984, the CAD program has evolved to meet the changing needs of the local Silicon Valley engineering and design firms. More than 12,000 students and professionals have been trained in our CTE programs over the decades. We integrated our first 3D Systems Printer into our advanced CAD Surfacing design classes in 1996.

What is 3-D Printing or Additive Manufacturing?   Questions:

3D Printing and 3D Scanning

This Spring 2017 our Additive Manufacturing facilities will be adding MarkForged technology to our array of systems: The new Mark Two system is capable of printing Z layer resolutions of 100 micron in Carbon Fiber, Nylon, Onyx, Fiberglass, HSHT Fiberglass and Kevlar. This exciting technology will be one of the highlights at our CAD User Group 2017 this March 30th at De Anza College.

SLA 3D Printing with Formlabs Form 2 uses an ultraviolet laser to trace a pattern, corresponding to the layers of the object to be printed, in a vat of photosensitive resin. The resin hardens where the laser touches it, forming, layer by layer, into the intended object at 25 micron layers with a variety of industrial grade materials.
