In this era of industrial revolution 4.0, rapid prototyping is considered as a top-notch manufacturing standard among manufacturing industries. Rapid prototyping is a pre-manufacturing method to conduct research and development based on mechanical properties of materials. In this approach, it is widely implemented in various manufacturing sectors regardless of light duty and heavy duty. According to this, industries are seeking for expertise well versed in rapid prototyping method to venture their respective manufacturing firm .

Through this exposure, students are well exposed to 3-Dimensional Modeling software’s such as Catia V5 and Thinker CAD. These sofware’s plays vital role in engineering design process such as sketching, solid modelling and simulations. Additionally, students also turn well verse about the functionality of the parts and components of 3D Printer such as layer filament that made of PLA material and G-M codes applied to perform the simulation.

On 4th April 2021, Open Day were held at SEGi College Penang. A demonstration session of 3D printing was conducted to exhibit and nurture the concept of rapid prototyping to new students.

In a nutshell, students able to nurture the 3D printing or rapid prototyping to adapt the implementation of Industry 4.0 at their industries. This learning process is essential to upskill engineering students to enhance their engineering skills. Moreover, to ensure engineering graduates from SEGi College Penang able to fulfill the requirement of industrial customers from various industry.

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested
    to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  5. Last year, Kobe announced that it will retire after the end of the season, this is the last time Kobe participated in all star events. So NBA players are in the different ways to pay tribute to the star, as the first person in NBA history, Jordan sent two sets of full range of air jordan shoes can be described as is “super gift”.

  6. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately,
    yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners
    and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did,
    the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  7. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as
    you did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.
