Jacob M. Abel Summer Internship is focused on research and design to support the laboratory course in the Mechanical Engineering department. In the summer of 2014, the department purchased a fleet of six MakerBots. I worked on two main areas: setting the logistics for the use and maintenance of the machine, as well as, to investigate the potential of the machines for course projects. The four pieces to the left were some of the sample pieces demonstrating the different capabilities of the machines.
