Abstract

The objective of this paper is to introduce, implement, and further enhance engineering education in digital additive manufacturing using a virtual Rapid Prototyping (RP) simulator within the established programs of Industrial, Manufacturing and Systems Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at the University of XXXX (XXXX). This paper describes a state-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 basic commands and functions of the real Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3000 facility and learning how to operate the FDM 3000 machine. The paper also aims at developing an effective learning model to facilitate student's learning in digital additive manufacturing. The students are separated to the control group and the experimental group to validate the use of the virtual Rapid Prototyping (RP) simulator. Student learning from both real and virtual environment are evaluated and discussed in this paper.
