Additive Manufacturing (AM), popularly known as 3-D Printing, has the potential to be a truly disruptive technology. AM technology presents the capability to create customized parts rapidly, economically, and with a geometric complexity beyond what is possible with traditional manufacturing. This ability will significantly impact the biomedical, aerospace, and construction enterprises. In this module, students were introduced to the concept of AM, with a focus on creating load bearing parts and structures. As a demonstration, students used AM technology to design, create, and test plate subjected to a ballistic impact.
