Abstract Scope Metal additive manufacturing (AM) techniques are an emerging family of processing technologies that undergraduate materials engineers need to become familiar with; however many of these techniques are not amenable to undergraduate teaching labs because they involve dangerous metal powders, high-voltage electronics, intense heat sources, and expensive difficult-to-operate equipment. To overcome some of the practical challenges with introducing undergraduates to metal AM, I have developed a hands-on lab module on hybrid additive manufacturing where students combine 3D printing with traditional metals processing techniques (for example, casting) to create net-shaped objects. This module has been implemented in the undergraduate materials processing class at Rice University and used to introduce key concepts in design for additive manufacturing, solidification processing, and casting practice. This talk will summarize this lab module as well as other educational initiatives related to 3D printing at Rice University.
