Welcome to General Engineering 1003
The due date for the 3D CAD models of your team logos and any course modifications has been moved back. Now any team logos or course modifications that you want to be printed by EG 1003 TAs is due at the same time as your Lab 7 presentation. If your design is denied, you will be allowed to resubmit after the deadline.
If you need any help with CAD or other CAD software, we will have TAs in the EG Prototyping Lab in RH223 (in the front two rooms) who have experience with CAD software and who will be working with our printers. You will have full access to our seven 3D printers in those rooms under the guidance of our TAs. The hours for the Prototyping Lab are 12pm - 6pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The hours on Wednesday are from 2pm - 6pm.
Also, if you print a robot or course modification on your own in the MakerSpace anytime before commissioning you will still be eligible for extra credit. All you will have to do is submit your design on the website and there will be a "Printed by team" option (this will be added to website in the coming week). This can be done after the normal deadline for submitting prints and will count as the same extra credit.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best of luck!
A second set of keys has been found in the lab rooms. If you or anyone you know is missing two keys on one key chain loop, please come to the TA office (515A) to pick them up!
A set of keys were recovered from Lab 1 today. If you, or someone you know, are missing keys, please stop by the TA Office to claim them. The keys have the 3D printed NYU Tandon keychain and a Coney Island Brewing Co. bottle opener, among other things.
First, please watch our Lab 5: NI ELVIS Tutorial in preparation for your labs this week! The quiz questions will be based off of this video. The video is accessible through the EG Manual or through the previous link.
Also, the student version of Microsoft Project is available for free through the Laptop Help Desk (RH 339). It is also available on any EG computer in the Model Shop or in our Labs.
Finally, The EG Prototyping Lab is open! Our 3D Printers, soldering irons, and more are accessible in RH 223 from 12 pm - 6 pm from Monday to Friday except Wednesday. Wednesday the Protolab is open from 2 pm - 6 pm.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
For those who could not attend because the room reached capacity, you can watch the presentation live through this link:
Next week, one of our Writing Consultants, Duncan Osborne, will be hosting a workshop on how to write a lab repot and how to sharpen the skills needed to write effectively. Lab reports are a significant portion of your EG 1003 grade and they will be an important part of many of your future classes. So we strongly urge you to come. The workshop will be in JAB 474 on Tuesday, September 27th at 12:30 pm.
In addition to this, we will be rewarding anyone that comes 10 extra points on their Lab 3 Report.
For Lab 3: Project Evaluation and Quality Improvement, please watch our 3D Modeling and Quality Improvement video before your lab. Some of the topics covered in this video will be covered in your quiz before class.
If you have any questions, please email your recitation TA or email@example.com.
For staffing information for the course you may click on "Sections" found on the left menu portion of this webpage under "Course Information" heading. Room numbers for recitations and labs may also be found on the same page. Lectures will take place in JAB473. Recitations and Labs are mainly run by TAs. You may familiarize yourselves with all of the EG TAs by clicking on "Teaching Assistants" and looking up your TAs by their names.
If you have any further questions regarding the course, assignments, staffing, or anything else you may direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a successful semester!
