Project description

Within the framework of the project entitled “Mechatronic Assemblies” as part of studies in Mechanical Engineering at Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, 3 students –Benny Hohmann, Thomas Krenzer and Andreas Hintz – worked together with Professor Pietzsch to produce an xy-pen plotter and a simple robotic arm using a 3D printing process.

The first task was to put together a team with the skills and capacity to carry out such a task alongside their studies, which involve numerous lectures and lab sessions. Once the team had been chosen, a meeting with the Professor was arranged in order to discuss the project and swap ideas. Within the team, tasks were defined, distributed and worked on.

This was the first time that the team members had carried out such a project. Particularly during the design phase, the team learned a great deal. After all, different rules apply to the production of 3D parts than to the manufacture of conventional parts such as milled components.

This project taught the entire team a lot in terms of the project process as well as the ability to independently become familiar with new technologies. All team members worked hand in hand for entire project and were highly successful in coordinating their efforts and in sharing information.

The assemblies will later serve as an aid for a lecture in the new course of studies in “Mechatronics & Robotics” in order to represent a systematic development, design and production process.

In future, the team will continue to focus on rapid prototyping and expand their expertise – gladly in connection with other projects.
