Description Rapid manufacturing is designated for manufacturing components from their CAD files directly without using a mould or a die. It includes: direct laser fabrication, selective laser sintering, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, laminate manufacturing and net shape HIPping.This course will introduce the state-of-art of various rapid manufacturing techniques, including the mechanism of individual techniques, their pros and cons, their applications and limitations. During the course, students will be asked to design their own components and create CAD files of those components and manufacture them using DTM laser Sintersation in the IRC.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module the student should be able to:Understand the mechanism of various rapid manufacturing techniques;Create CAD files of simple components;Manufacture those components from their CAD files using laser and selected powder.
