Thanks for the gallery tour. Your team has put together a nice web site.

As part of an NSF-ILI grant we have aquired FDM RP capability.
One of our objectives was to implement distance learning strategies for
cost effective RP laboratory access by other educational institutions.

We are an RP Educational Institution Service Bureau able to provide FDM
prototypes at cost. NOT to industry for cost, our niche is education. M
Our business is learning. We help industry learn about RP and forward M
potential customers to BASTECH, our local industrial service bureau, or
others offereing required RP services.

Please see the noted site for details. service bureau, or

Also, you (and other Colleagues monitoring this list) may be interested
in learning more about RP via our upcoming Sinclair Summer Workshop ted
Series. A stipend for travel is offered with NSF support and the op ted
tutition is absorbed by Sinclair.
See below for application information.

Dear Colleagues,


During the summers of 1998 and 1999, the Engineering & Industrial
Technologies Division of Sinclair Community College (Dayton, OH) will be
hosting a series of one-week faculty development workshops. The will be
are being conducted in partnership with the Advanced Integrated
Manufacturing (AIM) Center and with the support from a grant from the
National Science Foundation.

Two workshops will be held this summer during the one week of June 14-
1998: Rapid Prototyping and Workcell Simulation.

To promote a hands-on, small group learning environment, each workshop e
limited to 10 participants. The target audience is two-year college
faculty from math, science and engineering technology (but four-year
faculty feel free to apply).

More information on the workshops and the application process is ear
at the Sinclair Summer Workshop Series website, or by calling (937) 512-2242.
