These projects and worksheets have been provided by Dave White, Head of D&T at Clevedon School, UK.
Dave has been using a RapMan in school with his students for some time now and has put together these project ideas as a way to get started and make progress in the use of the machine for rapid prototyping. The resources have been written to guide students through a series of projects using Pro/ENGINEER although they can be adapted for Pro/DESKTOP or other 3D software.
