Abstract

Students design a small vehicle body by CAD. The designed body is machined by a 3D printer or CNC Jig borer. They also conduct simulations to solve aerodynamic problems and vehicle thermal management issues using CAE. On the final day, a competition evaluating their achievements is held using the machined body.
