Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)

"Design for Manufacturing" is a weeklong course that discusses the link between machine design and selection of manufacturing processes, with a focus on technologies available to MIT students. The course will examine strengths, limitations, and dimensional capabilities of processing techniques like machining, 2D processes (laser / waterjet), and 3d printing. The link between design and manufacturing will be discussed in terms of design manufacturability and the ability of a particular manufacturing process to meet component form, fit, and function. Best practices for engineering drawings will be presented so that design intent can be effectively communicated to machine shops. Advance registration is preferred; no enrollment limit.
