Description: 

We are seeking college students to participate in an innovative rapid prototyping research program that will focus on rapid prototyping applications in the biomedical, biomolecular, aerospace, architectural, manufacturing and electronics industries. Rapid prototyping is an automated fabrication process allowing objects to be created from a computer model without the need for molds, presses or machining. Rapid prototyping systems slice 3-D computer models into thin cross sections and use this data to control the placement of solid material. The process is repeated for each cross section, and the object is built up one layer at a time. The Milwaukee School of Engineering Rapid Prototyping Center has four state-of-the-art rapid prototyping machines, each capable of a different process - stereolithography (SLA), laminated object manufacturing (LOM), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and selective laser sintering (SLS). Accepted candidates will work 40 hours per week.
