[UCSI IET OC]: 190827 3D Printer Workshop
A total of 35 students from different disciplines including engineering, business and optometry, divided into eight groups, have participated in this 2-day 3D Printer Workshop. At the beginning of workshop, a brief introduction and basic knowledge of 3D printer was presented to the participants by Mr Ngo Kah Lock, the organizing chairperson. This is followed by a series of extensive hands-on session that began with the assembly of 3D printer. During the assembly process, all participants learned about the mechanical components and operating mechanisms of a 3D printer. They also acquired the practical skills in handling the electrical components of 3D printer through the installation of different sensors and actuators, as well as interfacing these components with microcontroller to ensure the functionality of 3D printer. Different ideas have been brainstormed among the trainers and participants in troubleshooting the technical issues encountered during the assembly process.
Assistant Professor Dr Tiang Sew Sun and Assistant Professor Dr Lim Wei Hong, the club advisor of UCSI IET On Campus have expressed their encouragement to all committee members. “The response of this 3D printer workshop is unbelievably overwhelmed as you can see there are participants from other faculties. It shows that the technology advancement brought by Industry 4.0 have impacted everyone regardless of their disciplines. We are really proud of the team and we hope that the success of this 3D printer workshop can motivate our committee members to organize more impactful events that stay relevant to Industry 4.0 in the future.”
