3D Printing: Design
Design Solutions gives teams of students the opportunity to utilize 3-D design software to create small designs that may be printed using the classroom 3-D printers. Coach Ellis will present basic design information along with copyright and patent information. Students will gain experience using software tutorials provided by the software manufacturer. Hands-on design work will be supplemented with a Design Logbook. Students will be challenged with Problem of the Day activities to design or modify products that will increase in difficulty. At the end of the activities, each team of students will print their design solution and present their product to the class.
Upon completion of this activity, students will:
• Understand how an engineer moves a design from an idea to a 3-D object.
• Understand how 3-D design software is used by product designers.
• Understand the protection provided by a copyright, patent, and trademark.
• Develop a solution to a given design problem.
• Understand the role CAM software performs during the manufacturing process.
• Understand one of the methods used for 3-D printing.
3D Printing: Vehicle Engineering
Using the provided activity materials and a Dremel 3D Printer, students design a battery-powered vehicle. The activity is designed to be completed in teams. Students are guided through the design process by the Engineering Notebook. After students have completed this activity, they will understand how rapid prototyping is used by engineers to solve design problems in an iterative manner. An engineering challenge is an ideal way to wrap up a simple machines or mechanics unit with a hands-on design challenge.
After completing this activity, students will have achieved the following learning outcomes:
• Students will understand how an engineer takes an idea from paper to a 3-D printed prototype.
• Students will understand what CAD is and how it is used by engineers.
• Students will understand what CAM is and how it is used by engineers.
• Students will develop a design solution using given design constraints.
• Students will evaluate competing conceptual design solutions using a decision matrix for decision making.
• Students will collect and interpret data gathered by physical experiments.
• Students will plan and execute an experiment.
• Students will use experimental data to compare and draw conclusions that lead to an improved design solution.
• Students will discuss the intended/unintended consequences of design changes.
• Students will apply the mathematical concept of ratios to improve their design solution.
• Students will understand the difference between the mass and weight of their vehicle.
