Monday is the day things really start for campers. Right off the bat Monday Morning Dr. Harrysson and Dr. Horn got the amazingly quick learning campers up and running on Solidworks, the CAD system we start everything off with here. None of the campers had ever used Solidworks before, but fearless and bright leads to rapid success. After each student completed a design for a key chain, the next lesson was in scanning technology. Phd candidate Harshad Srinivasan was the scanning leader; see him in action below. Don’t forget you can click on any picture for a larger view.
The Campers then had their work 3D printed, most of which happened overnight. Their printed design was waiting for them Tuesday morning. See some examples below:
Tuesday’s challenge? To turn the above into molds that can be used to make lots of key chains. Also on tap for Tuesday is a tour of Fineline/ProtoLabs, one of the very best on demand rapid prototype businesses that exist anywhere.
