The Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) is used to heat or cool the test arena. Featuring 10 wells that are drilled from 200 to 500 feet deep, our GSHP is modified with instrumentation and controls for educational purposes and is part of the ENDEAVOR energy related experimental suite.
The ENDEAVOR Theater Booms provide vertical capability for autonomous vehicles and support for ground vehicles.
Craftbot Plus 3D printers incorporate extremely detailed 100 micron print resolution to ensure that the finished 3D model has a great deal of precision in its design. Craftbot has a sizeable footprint and one of the largest build volumes in its class, and features a heated build platform to prevent bending or warping.
A lathe is a machine for shaping wood, metal, or other material by means of a rotating drive that turns the piece being worked on against changeable cutting tools. It will be utilized for project based learning, primarily focused on senior design.
A router is a power tool with a shaped cutter, used in carpentry for making grooves for joints, decorative moldings, etc. This piece of equipment will be primarily used for the build phase of design projects.
A milling machine is used in shaping flat and irregular surfaces. Aside from this main function, the milling machine can also perform other tasks such as drilling, routing, planning, cutting gears, boring, and producing slots among others. This piece of equipment will aid in the build phase of design projects.
The fully-certified and integrated laser scanner is designed to capture 3D point data across a range of surface types. It requires no calibrations, warm-up time, or additional cables and controllers. With an ultra-wide laser stripe of up to 150 mm, the RS4 can capture 752,000 points per second, reducing the number of passes required to fully scan a part and minimizing overall measurement time.
This machine is similar to the Markforged X, in that it prints the same base materials. The difference here is that the Markforged Mark Two does not include the laser inspection capabilities.
Built from the ground up for reliable performance, the X delivers breakthrough quality and precision in 3D printing. The top-of-the-line industrial grade platform features a strengthened dual nozzle print system that supports Continuous Carbon Fiber and Kevlar reinforcement. Laser inspection scans the part mid-print to ensure dimensional accuracy for the most critical tolerances.
The Metal X is the world’s first Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) machine. It’s up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting. Affordable, reliable, and easy to use, the Metal X print system gives you everything you need to go from design to fully functional metal parts faster than ever before.
The Onyx Pro is a plastic printer that can also print using fiberglass for reinforcement.
The Onyx One is a solid plastic printer that can also print using chopped carbon fiber. This printer is intended to be used for printing plastic parts that require higher quality.
The Nomad CNC is a subtractive manufacturing machine that can take a block of material and turn it into a detailed 2D or 3D model. Possible materials include soft metal, wood, printed circuit boards, and a wide range of plastics.
The BossLaser cutter uses a 150W carbon dioxide laser to cut and engrave a wide range of materials including plastics, wood, fabrics, foam, composites, and paper. This system will not cut most metals; however, it will engrave common metals, excluding silver and brass.
The Aerolab Wind Tunnel is available for students to study aerodynamic properties. The wind tunnel is able to produce streams of air moving at various speeds to analyze the effects of flowing air on solid objects.
Vibrationally Isolated Slabs prevent the transmission of vibration through the floor to provide stability for delicate processes. These locations are ideal for hosting nano-engineering projects.
