A university research group studies the process of fabricating a prosthesis during the time it takes to operate. This process solves the problem of imprecise 3D printed prosthesis and optimizing the machining operation to create a prosthesis within a certain duration. The results lead to decreased time and cost to the overall operation.
This case study provides an overview of a course offered in programming 5-axis CAM and CNC machining for the aerospace industry offered at Oregon Tech. The case study explains how the Pocket NC machines can be used to offer students hands-on experience with 5-axis desktop CNC machines with low risk and relatively affordable cost compared to other 5-axis CNC machines.
