Abstract

Integrating Cyber Based Rapid Manufacturing with Virtual Facility and Tutor System into Engineering Education Tzu-Liang Bill Tseng, Noe Vargas-Hernandez, Richard Chiou, Paras Mandal, Karthik Varma Koppella and Juan Venegas MendezThe objective of this paper is to introduce, implement, and further enhance engineeringeducation in cyber-based rapid manufacturing using a virtual Rapid Prototyping (RP) simulatorand a tutor system within the established programs of Industrial, Manufacturing and SystemsEngineering and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at El Paso. This paperdescribes a state-of-the-art virtual rapid prototyping simulator in 3D environment and a tutorsystem. The purpose of the virtual RP simulator is allowing the users to learn how to operate theFused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3000 machine in a virtual environment while the goal of thetutor system is to enhance student learning when the instructor is not available. The paper alsoaims at developing an effective learning model to facilitate student’s learning in rapidmanufacturing. Student learning from both real and virtual environment and with and without thesupport from the tutor system are evaluated and discussed in this paper.
