COLI’s FDM 3D Printers, Rigby and Mordecai, were again hard at work printing for students!
Dr. Mike Wood’s Introduction to Engineering class (EGR111) have designed and are building a solar-powered water elevation system – an Archimedes Screw. While they have constructed much of it from available materials, they required specialized fittings, and submitted their designs to COLI for printing.
With this project, EGR 111 students are introduced to some basics of professional design, fabrication, and engineering excellence. We may do the printing, but students are doing the critical design work!
Thanks to Dr. Wood for letting us assist in this authentic learning experience for our Canisius students!
