Abstract

The discipline of computer aided design is a modern phenomenon driving the rapidly improving technological world of today. Additive manufacturing is not new, but the progress made in the past two decades has increased the examination made by academics and industry experts significantly. One method of this phenomenon is known as 3D printing. This future technology enables businesses to cut costs, reduces time to market, produces stronger and lighter parts, improves efficiency, and solves a myriad of other challenges. This very beneficial and essential process is needed for students to have an understanding of the technology in the 21st century global economy. Figure 1 shows a rudimentary flow chart expressing the design process from the conception phase through to model finalization.

Curriculum Development on Computer-Aided Design and Additive Manufacturing

The discipline of computer aided design is a modern phenomenon driving the rapidly improving technological world of today. Additive manufacturing is not new, but the progress made in the past two decades has increased the examination made by academics and industry experts significantly. One method of this phenomenon is known as 3D printing. This future technology enables businesses to cut costs, reduces time to market, produces stronger and lighter parts, improves efficiency, and solves a myriad of other challenges. This very beneficial and essential process is needed for students to have an understanding of the technology in the 21st century global economy. Figure 1 shows a rudimentary flow chart expressing the design process from the conception phase through to model finalization.
