Logistics and Announcements eptember 21 2011 September 21, 2011 Volunteers for CS2 – 8 groups needed 161 enrolled students and 28 groups in total. Anyone left outside a group? Very last call! Labs start THIS WEEK (week of September 19, 2011) Lab attendance is mandatory and records will be kept. Meccano kits will be distributed during lab time. A borrowing contract has to be signed by the team leader. An updated version of the tentative course outline is available on WebCT. Slide 1

“Quickly From Art to Part” Desktop Design & Manufacturing Desktop manufacturing enables engineers to catch and remedy problems early on the manufacturing process because they can inexpensively test out new product and manufacturing ideas. Desktop Manufacturing is also known as Rapid Prototyping. Rapid prototyping. Why? To reduce time-to-market. To create accurate realistic physical objects directly from the CAD model without ever having to use a machining tool. o reduce cost and time for the process from 30 to 95 To reduce cost and time for the process from 30 to 95 %.

Rapid Prototyping Facts Rapid prototyping is the most common name given to technologies that are used to fabricate physical objects irectly from CAD data sources directly from CAD data sources . These methods are unique in that they add and bond materials in layers to form objects. Such systems are also known by the general names freeform fabrication (FFF), solid freeform fabrication FF and layered manufacturing. (S ) a d aye ed a u actu g Objects can be formed with any geometric complexity or intricacy without the need for elaborate machine setup or nal sembly final assembly. Rapid prototyping systems reduce the construction of complex objects to a manageable, straightforward, and relatively fast process. Slide 5

Rapid Prototyping Rapid Prototyping Facts Contd. Facts Contd. Rapid prototyping is the best way to reduce time to market in manufacturing, to better understand and mmunicate product designs and to make rapid communicate product designs, and to make rapid tooling to manufacture those products. Remember: Rapid prototyping isn't a solution to every part fabrication problem. CNC technology is economical, widely understood and available, offers wide material selection and excellent accuracy. While the accuracy of rapid prototyping isn't generally as good as CNC, it's adequate today for a wide range of applications.
