In-Lab Activities and Exercises 

Laboratory 1: 3D printing of polymers/plastics

Learning Objective: The student will gain experience in the use of additive manufacturing equipment based on filament fabrication (Fused Deposition Modeling), vat photopolymerization,and other polymer 3D printing techniques.

Deliverables: After learning how to pre-process, fabricate and post-process 3D-printed parts, the students will present a brief report and a fabricated part.

Laboratory 2: 3D printing of metals

Learning Objective: The student will develop practical knowledge on the fabrication of metallic parts by different additive manufacturing techniques, namely laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF), direct energy deposition, DED, and hybrid manufacturing.

Deliverables: The students will present a brief report about their findings and to discuss the impact of process parameters in the quality of the fabricated parts.
