Credits: 3

Prerequisites:  WELD 1501 Introduction to Welding, MTTP 1201 Basic Machine Shop, and MTTP 1241 Introduction to Computer Aided Design (CAD)

In this course students will be introduced to prototyping methodology through practical projects. Students will use rapid prototyping techniques to integrate with computer software to produce a physical model of a part.  Students will be introduced to several prototyping techniques and use various machine tools and 3D printing in order to create a prototype of a part.  The prototyping processes and procedures will be documented throughout the project.
