Rapid Prototyping TechniquesCollege of Engineering
This course provides students with an opportunity to conceive design and implement a product, using rapid prototyping methods and computer-aided tools. The first of two phases challenges each student team to meet a set of design requirements and constraints for a structural component. A course of iteration, fabrication, and validation completes this manual design cycle. During the second phase, each team conducts design optimization using structural analysis software, with their phase one prototype as a baseline.
