Steve Collins, prototype development specialist at the University of Alabama Huntsville, is a firm believer in the value of rapid prototype technology in his classroom.
"The Fortus machine has allowed us to do things we couldn't do in any other way," he noted. The approximately 1,000 mechanical and aerospace engineering students he works with no longer are limited in their imaginations when it comes to complex designs. "Before we had the Fortus machine, students needed the manual skills to produce projects, now they can create very complex designs with nothing more than a CAD file."
