Welcome to General Engineering 1003
Good Evening Everyone!
This Tuesday, September 25th, 12:30-2:00 pm, writing consultant Duncan Osborne will be giving a writing workshop in Pfizer auditorium. This workshop will help in writing your lab reports for the rest of the semester. If (and only if!) you attend this workshop, you have the opportunity to rewrite your first lab report for a new grade. This is a fantastic opportunity, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of it.
Have a good weekend!
As mentioned on Thursday, this coming week's lecture, on September 27th, is cancelled. Open lab will be open at this time for you to work with your groups on your SLDPs. You are strongly encouraged to use your time wisely and try to get work on your projects done while all of your group members are free.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
We've been getting many questions about the Lab 1B, building the keychain using Fusion 360. Some of the common issues we've seen are:
- Units - If you built the keychain in inches in Fusion 360, then it'll be very small when you open it in Cura. To fix, go back to Fusion 360 to convert the units to millimeters under "Document Settings" on the left and re-save the STL.
- Unable to save as .gcode - If you are unable to save your gcode from Cura and Cura has a button on the bottom right that says "Prepare", click on "Prepare" first and the option to save to file should appear at the same spot.
If you have any further issues, you can get help from the Makerspace as well.
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 at the Dibner building, in the Pfizer Auditorium. 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 email@example.com. Have a successful semester!
