This curriculum compliments the intermediate 3D printing lesson pack. It can be used as a follow on to build and enhance student’s skills and knowledge or it could be used as a mix and match alongside the Intermediate pack.
By the end of this project all students will be able to;
- Review how 3D printing can disrupt traditional manufacturing supply chains
- Discuss how 3D printing is being used in real life manufacturing case studies
- Describe how 3D printing is impacting the sustainability of manufacturing
- To review how 3D printing design and 3D printers can be sustainable
- Explain the fundamentals of carbon footprint and product miles
- 3D model a case for their own smart phone.
- Combine basic modelling skills in fusion 360 with more advanced techniques such as modelling features on curved surfaced
- Explain the different the difference between open source and closed source business models.
- Differentiate between additive manufacturing techniques and subtractive manufacturing methods.
Most students will be able to;
- Explain the benefits of 3D printing to local economies
- Describe one example of where 3D printing has been used to replace traditionally manufactured parts
- Compare 3D printing against CNC milling
- 3D model an object that uses advanced modelling techniques such as creating features on curved surfaces alongside sketched that are patterned.
Some students will be able to;
- Form an argument for the long-term use of 3D printing over traditional manufacturing methods
- Explain potential benefits and drawbacks of using Bio-plastic
- Model an smartphone passive amp integrating a pattern on a curved surface
