“3D Printing: Learn by Building” 2016 is a flended (flipped+blended) course that introduces the exciting engineering in 3D printing to junior/senior undergraduate students. It offers a hybrid learning experience that focuses on the mechatronics, design, and systematic integration of 3D printing machines. Students will build 3D printers from a series of inexpensive open-source parts, together with receiving in-class and online lectures on the fundamental theory and applications of additive manufacturing (AM). With the flipped and blended learning, the course fosters cognitive skills including collaboration, communication, learning from failure, critical thinking, creativity, and persistence.
