MAKING IT REAL AT CIM CTI UK
Teachers at CIM CTI @ UK have designed containers in CAD, brought them into CAM software, simulated them on a computer, then manufactured them on a CNC Milling machine.
How else can we teach high school students advanced manufacturing techniques? Start with the teachers! Teachers have come from all over the state to learn how to teach the PLTW Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) at the University of Kentucky.
What’s it look like when they used the milling machine to make the lid of their container? This 20 minute operation is timelapsed for you here into a 42 second video. See the photos below as well.
