For their final project in Design and Drawing for Production (IED), students in Mr. Hyatt’s class designed, modeled, and produced their own custom laser cut clocks. Students were given some basic constraints but were encouraged to be creative, use the knowledge and skills they’ve acquired this year in class, and demonstrate what the laser cutter is capable of doing through cutting and engraving. All clocks were cut using ⅛” Baltic Birch Plywood and pieces were layered, cut, engraved, and/or painted to achieve their specific looks.
In addition to this final project, students also designed, modeled, and produced custom fidget spinners earlier this year and printed them on the 3D printers. They also designed and produced T-shirts with their own custom designed logos. The students did an excellent job! @PLTWorg @CazenoviaCSD @CazHSTechLabs @mfgeducation
Welcome to Cazenovia High School for CAP 2017. Thirty CIM teachers from across this great state getting together to share their expertise and their passion in Computer Integrated Manufacturing.
The goal of CIM-A-Palooza is to walk away with a better understanding of what kind of high-tech manufacturing takes place locally (Tour of Marquardt), and a high interest, low cost project to share with your students in your classroom. This project will utilize CNC machines, laser cutters and other manufacturing techniques including finishing, cutting, sanding, soldering, and assembly.
Special thanks to Marquardt Switches and SME Chapter 19 & Jim Maniccia for all they have done to make this a great opportunity for all of us.
The download above is a zip folder that includes the following documents:
Feel free to utilize these in your classroom. The word docs have been provided so you can modify to your heart’s content. Please share.

What’s the container project you ask? It’s a project done in CIM class that teaches many different facets of CIM including:
G & M Code, 3D Modelling, Manual machine operations, CNC machining, Secondary processing, Tolerances, Documentation, Mass Production techniques, Assembly operations, Order of operations, Costs of materials, Speeds & feeds….
Just to name a few… Here’s a short video done by one of my participants at the University of Kentucky Core Training Institute that gives a great visual representation of the steps required to go from start to finish. Thanks to Christopher Townsend,@BCHSEngrTechContinue Reading
