• Lessons learned and best practices for teaching the course
• Faculty impression of the course and future plans
Ryan Erickson, Maker Space Coord., Cedar Park Elementary, Apple Valley, MN. & Gina Scala, Dir. of Edu. Marketing, Stratasys
Learn how to implement 3D printing to increase student engagement across K-12 curriculum. Presenter Ryan Erickson, a Minnesota Maker Space coordinator, outlines 3D printing lessons applicable to daily student life. The webinar focuses on one simple question, “How do we apply 3D printing to K-12 education?” The process doesn’t start with expensive machines and complex software applications. Students are introduced to the technology from the bottom up. Simple IOS apps such as MakerBot PrintShop, scan student drawings for immediate upload to CAD for 3D printing. Applying 3D printing to classrooms goes beyond engineering in STEM learning – it redefines creativity entirely. Students can model historical monuments into tangible figures to understand sentiment and context; model sonic waves into visible artifacts; build geometric figures to understand volume and surface area, and map proteins and atoms into connectable models. 3D printing engages students to think creatively, it allows them to craft and build with imagination. For teachers, this technology maximizes the opportunity for impactful learning environments.
Sand casting is the process of metal casting using sand as the mold material. The resulting mold cavity is used to create finished metal parts. The production of sand molds and cast metal parts is relatively straightforward and suitable for automated methods. However, fabrication of the patterns used to produce the sand molds (typically CNC machining) is often difficult, time-consuming and expensive.
Uri Masch, Stratasys PolyJet Applications Engineer
Prototyping and low-volume production of LSR parts are typically handled with manual casting methods, using molds made of metal, RTV or modeling board. However, these kinds of molds can be time and labor intensive to produce and pose limitations on the complexity of the mold.
Alissa Wild, Sr. Business Development Manager at Stratasys
Dig into the details and identify applications on your manufacturing floor for 3D printed jigs and fixtures. In this webinar you'll see many use cases of companies saving time and money while creating efficiency on their production floors with custom jigs and fixtures.
Todd Grimm, Technology Consultant and Industry Thought Leader
Learn how to access the potential ROI of 3D printing and justify the cost of a machine with profit gains from 3D printing manufacturing aids. Increasing the number of manufacturing tools like jigs, fixtures, organizational aids, improves efficiency, capacity, unit cost and responsiveness. Using additive manufacturing (3D printing) to produce these tools makes them more accessible and quicker to implement.
Manufacturing relies on aids and tools, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges to maintain quality and production efficiency. By using FDM 3D Printing technology to produce jigs and fixtures, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.
A robot’s end of arm tool (EOAT) is selected based on the operation it will perform and is specific to the part or tool that it manipulates. Robot users often need customized solutions to engage uniquely shaped objects but this is typically a costly and time-consuming approach.
In this webinar you’ll see how FDM technology offers a number of benefits over traditional methods of making EOATs.
Learn how 3D printing with FDM Technology makes the production of composite tooling faster, more agile and less costly. Listen as Tim Schniepp, Stratasys business development director for composite tooling, explains the benefits and capabilities of FDM composite tooling, including examples of customers who successfully use this application.
Learn more as Dr. Scott Rader, Stratasys, and Dr. Vicknes Waran, Centre for Biomedical and Technology Integration (CBMTI) in Malaysia, discuss how 3D printing can reduce cost, improve care or increase speed at every step in the medical device value chain. This results in increased profitability, technology adoption and market responsiveness. Stratasys solutions shape clinical outcomes and corporate profit.
