ENGR 300 - 3D Printing and Design


Student are exposed to the complete lifecycle of the 3D printing process. Students will begin by assembling their own fused deposition modeling (FDM) printer, learning the design and function of each hardware component and how they combine to produce a finished print. Students will learn the characteristics of all major filament types, nozzle sizes and types, how to slice 3D models and adjust slicer settings to produce quality gcode, how to resolve common print errors, and how to post-process prints (including wood and metal finishing). Students will also learn to design their own 3D models for printing, culminating in a final, independent project of their own creation. Letter grade with Pass/No Pass option. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
