Abstract

Digital Additive Manufacturing for Engineering Education: A Virtual Rapid Prototyping Simulator Approach AbstractThe objective of this paper is to introduce, implement, and further enhance engineeringeducation in digital additive manufacturing using a virtual Rapid Prototyping (RP) simulatorwithin the established programs of Industrial, Manufacturing and Systems Engineering andMechanical Engineering at the University of Texas as El Paso (UTEP). This paper describes astate-of-the-art virtual rapid prototyping simulator in 3D environment using XNA framework.The purposes of the virtual RP simulator are allowing the users to get familiar with the basiccommands and functions of the real Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3000 facility andlearning how to operate the FDM 3000 machine. The paper also aims at developing an effectivelearning model to facilitate student’s learning in digital additive manufacturing. The students areseparated to the control group and the experimental group to validate the use of the virtual RapidPrototyping (RP) simulator. Student learning from both virtual and real environment areevaluated and discussed in this paper.
