ADM 2040 - Advanced Additive Concepts Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 2 Lab 2
Course Description: This course is focused on advanced concepts of additive manufacturing and the wide spread industry implementation of this disruptive technology. Course content includes mechanical and physical properties of 3D printing materials, one-time use and end use products, blending additive with traditional manufacturing, and creating molds, jigs, and fixtures. In this hands-on class, students will create, develop, and analyze additively manufactured products to meet the needs of diverse users.
Prerequisite(s): ADM 2010 with grade of C or higher.
- Mechanical and physical material properties
- Polymers and metals
- Ceramics and composites
- Meeting customer needs and specifications
- One time use and end use parts
- Molds for traditional castings
- Jigs and fixtures
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- describe and recommend additive manufacturing materials.
- suggest additive manufacturing processes to complement traditional manufacturing.
- identify the economics of additive systems.
- create tools, jigs, and fixtures using additive manufacturing.
- create molds for traditional manufacturing castings.
- identify uses where additive manufacturing can be implemented to replace or complement traditional manufacturing especially to address new or diverse situations.
