Summer Camp: 3D and Beyond!

Prepare to Experience a New Dimension

Explore the expanding and ever-changing world of mechanical engineering in this hands-on career camp!

Students will spend the week with the School of Mines Mechanical Engineering Department getting hands-on experience with 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM).  Students will design parts, from concept to prototype using Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and produce functional assemblies that address an engineering grand challenge.

Students will learn about the seven fundamental Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes while participating in demonstrations and activities that increase their awareness of the practical uses and limitations of the technology. They'll learn about Design For Additive Manufacturing (DFAM), process flow, AM materials, safety, and secondary processes (e.g. investment casting, silicone molding, etc.). Activities will also include interactive 3D scanning and stereophotogrammetry demonstrations that expose students to 3D model construction and editing. They will be introduced to multiple software packages including Tinkercad, SolidWorks, Netfabb, MeshMixer, and Simplify3D.

The future of Additive Manufacturing is bright, and there is no doubt that it will revolutionize the products we use and the processes used to make them. The purpose of this camp is to open students’ minds to the endless possibilities of 3D printing, AM, and mechanical engineering. The core goal of this summer camp is to inspire creativity through freedom of design and open-source access to the vast supply of information at students’ fingertips

To the 3rd Dimension and Beyond! is a great introduction to the cutting-edge, exciting world of mechanical engineering.
