Art to Engineering: Pervasive RP activities at Arizona State University
MetadataShow full item record
We present a sampling ofwidely diverse Rapid Prototyping activities at ASU. Through the interdisciplinary PRISM project, RP is firmly involved in three areas: education, research and outreach. Two courses have been developed, one teaches RP over the web and the other Visualization and RP as applied technologies aimed at interdisciplinary graduates and seniors. Researchers and students from Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design, Fine Arts and Liberal Arts and Sciences and Business actively use RP. A recent formation ofthe PARfC (PRISM Advanced Rapid-fabrication Consortium) Consortium with local industry will create a local and formal center for research, education, service and training in Rapid Fabrication.
