Development of a Web-Based Rapid Prototyping and Product Design CourseAbstractThis paper presents development of an integrated web-based rapid prototyping and productdesign course in the online Master of Science degree in engineering technology core discipline.The topics are aligned with a current trend for rapid product realization and information-integrated product design systems in industry, which currently includes rapid prototypingcoupled with computer aided product design and development that provides zero-lead times inproduct conception and development. The main goal of the developed course is to simulate thisreal-life engineering development experience for our online graduate students who will work inteams to develop consumer products and at the end able to produce abs plastic prototypes usingweb-based remote log-in capability of the rapid prototyping machine. Hardware and softwarecomponents are integrated with prototyping methodologies to achieve maximum effectiveness inteaching web-based prototyping concepts in ET615-Rapid Prototyping and Product design. Thecourse includes theory and application of rapid prototyping technologies for new productconceiving, designing, manufacturing and testing. It also addresses the importance and examplesof product design modeling and virtual prototyping. A survey of modern tools of digitalprototyping and basics of solid modeling and Computer Aided Design-CAD technologies forprototyping are provided.
