Jennifer Johns is attending TCT this week to discuss AM and the opportunities for a networking and co-ordination of the UK’s AM capability.
Written by Adam McGlenaghan Throughout the summer, I have been completing an internship with the DMF lab focusing on the use of Electroencephalogram (EEG) in design. I have thoroughly enjoyed the summer and it has introduced me to many exciting areas of ongoing research, as well as working as part of a research group. Initial […]
The DMF lab recently (remotely) attended the International Conference of Engineering Design (ICED) 2021 to present seven papers. One of these, authored by Chris Cox, Ben Hicks and James Gopsill, investigates the new language surrounding the paradigm shift towards digital engineering. This presentation was shown at ICED 2021 as part of the “Digital Twins” panel, […]
Prototyping is an indispensable activity in the product development process but what does prototyping practice in industry look like? In this video we take a ‘snapshot’ of prototyping practice from 5 companies to see how practice has evolved and understand what the characteristics of industrial practices are. This work was presented at the International Conference […]
What are the differences in performance and usability of digitisation techniques? In this video we compare two such methods; photogrammetry and structured light scanning. For more details please see the full paper on the link here https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/proceedings-of-the-design-society/article/comparison-of-structured-light-scanning-and-photogrammetry-for-the-digitisation-of-physical-prototypes/66038D84EF1A45F22F601B899EFC0D25. This work was presented at the International Conference of Engineering Design (ICED) 2021.
The IDEA (International Design Engineering Annual) Challenge just completed its first iteration! Inspired by current events, this year’s participants competed to develop a novel vaccine transport system to aid in the distribution of vaccines across rural Colombia. Fourteen participants from across four institutions participated. Over the course of four days, the groups worked hard to […]
Prototyping constitutes a wide range of methods spanning both physical and digital domains, each with their respective benefits and drawbacks. Different methods are used in the product development process (PDP) to generate knowledge about both the problem and design solution. A key ingredient to successful product development is ensuring that the right knowledge about the product is […]
Brokering Additive Manufacturing has published and presented their second paper entitled “Achieving responsive and sustainable manufacturing through a brokered agent-based production paradigm” at the International Conference on Sustainable Design and Manufacturing (SDM).
