IN5590 Rapid Prototyping of Robotic Systems - V2019


Part 1 : (January -> easter)

  • Completing 4 small projects involving the use of:
    • Fusion 360: Nurbs, T-spline, material simulation, CAM
    • Ultimaker, Creality Ender 3, Fortus 250, Markforged carbon, Formlabs SLA, HP sls, Objet connex, Epilog Zing laser, Datron NEO CNC
  • Competitions and demonstration of 3 of the projects in front of an audience / expert panel

Part 2 : (easter -> May)

  • Conducting a research project involving: (choose one from)
    • Making hardware/software for your upcoming master/PhD project
    • Making hardware/software any research, innovative or technically relevant project
    • Other examples : Mobile and modular table, trebuchet, keyboard
  • During the research project:
    • Writing a paper describing the project aim, choose of methods, experiments and results
    • Paper template

Some old examples: INF5207-V19, INF4500-V18, V16, V15, V14


Evaluation / requirements

  • IN5590 has no final examination, but all projects, demonstrations and the paper must be approved to pass.
  • IN5590 has a final "pass"/"no pass" grade, but the results and rankings from the mandatory competitions, the paper and all designs will be public accessible on the web
  • All deliveries are individual but some collaboration is recommended


Fusion 360 - CAD/CAM

  • Solids / NURBS
  • Solids / Tspline
  • Photo realistic rendering by ray-tracing
  • Material static stress analysis
  • Computer Aided Machining (CAM)
