Product Dissection Laboratory

201 Transportation Building
Director: James Leake

The College of Engineering has agreed to fund the creation of a Product Dissection Laboratory within the Department of Industrial & Enterprise Systems Engineering. This laboratory will be used in support of a newly proposed reverse engineering design project within GE 101, Engineering Graphics and Design. After selecting a suitable commercial product, student teams will then tear down and reverse engineer the product or device. Laboratory equipment will include a Stratasys Dimension BST 3D Printer, a Microscribe 3D digitizer, HighRES software that permits direct entry of digitized input into Autodesk Inventor parametric modeling software, computer workstations for five design teams, as well as digital cameras, electronic calipers, tool sets, and hold-down devices.
