Harry today presented his poster titled “Investigating strategies for mass property replication in 3D printed prototypes” at DCC2020 – virtually, of course, given the world we now live in! The poster aims to introduce the use of variable infill for the purpose of replicating mass properties between as-designed and as-fabricated parts when using rapid prototyping. […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Digital-Physical Twinning, Machine Based Manufacturing, Project Clean Access

The Workshop is a job scheduling tool for coordinating manufacturing in areas such as university workshops. It’s a collaborative initiative between the DMF lab’s project clean access, and industry partner CFMS. It has been developed to enable the continued functioning of University manufacturing centres by assisting the transition to more virtual interaction with students and […]

Mass property mapping: first paper accepted – Design 2020

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Digital-Physical Twinning, News, Perception of Mass

Harry’s first paper has been accepted to Design 2020! Titled “Looks like but does it feel like? Investigating the influence of mass properties on user perceptions of rapid prototypes” the paper looks at how mass, balance and inertia are considered by people through manipulation of an example part. It was found that each of the […]

Looks like but does it feel like?

Harry has been completing early investigatory studies as part of his PhD work. This has focussed on the completion of a study, completed within the Department of Mechnical Engineering, that focused on how mass properties (mass, balance and inertia) affect a user’s perception of a product. The study used a drill model printed on an […]
