This workshop will take place in our new 3D Printing Lab, where students will learn about the prosthetics industry, engage in 3D printing, and develop Computer-Aided Design (CAD) skills. 3D printing and CAD go hand in hand when it comes to the engineering process. The construction of prototypes is essential for transforming an idea into a marketable product. Students will participate in hands-on activities guided by Mateo McDermott, a Biomedical Engineering Senior at Virginia Tech, working through the hand-cast mold process and using Tinkercad and Fusion360. Mateo serves as President of eNABLE, which is an organization devoted to making free and low-cost prosthetic upper limbs for children and adults in need.
