DMT 53
3D Printing, Reverse Engineering and Rapid Prototyping: Strategies in Industry

Course Description

The objective of this course is to present a comprehensive overview of 3D Printing, spanning from fundamentals to applications and technology trends. Participants will learn the fundamentals of (AM) Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing of polymers, metals, composites, and biomaterials, and will realize how process capabilities (rate, cost, quality) are determined by the material characteristics, process parameters, and machine designs. Application areas including aerospace components, electronics, high-tech, medical devices, and consumer products will be discussed by means of detailed examples and case studies. Particular emphasis will be placed on concepts of industry applications, and related design principles and process standards. In class sessions will run live demonstrations with state-of-the-art industry grade 3D Printers, 3D Laser scanners and reverse engineering tools. Participants will understand how to design, fabricate, and measure test parts, and explore Additive Manufacturing process limits as well as appropriate applications of these technologies.
