ME 203: Design and Manufacturing
This course provides an integrated experience involving need finding, product definition, conceptual design, detail design, prototype manufacture, public presentation of outcomes, archiving and intrepreting the product realization process and its results.
I learned how to work safely and effectively in a machine shop, learning skills in subtractive machining (lathe and mill), sand casting, laser cutting, Oxy-Acetelene welding, as well as robust prototyping. I took an idea and turned it into reality.
For my project, I decided to make a cocktail shaker.
Please see the below galleries for my project portfolio including (in order):
* Concept Sketches
* Descriptions and Reflections
* Early Parts - CAD
* Final Parts - CAD
* Glamour Shots
* Prototyping and Manufacturing Process Photos
Descriptions and Reflections
Not only did I learn my way around a machine shop in this course, I also learned how to write clearly and concisely. Below are attachments to my Reflections Essay, Executive Summary, and Product Description.
