Each spring, engineering and technology students from around the world gather in Huntsville, Alabama to participate in the Human Exploration Rover Challenge. Andrew Ansley, employee of The Davis Groupe, LLC co-led a team at the 2018 Technology Challenge at MTSU where teams of students were asked to focus on wheel design and fabrication. Andrew coordinated the 3D printing of the wheel components. 3D printing is a long process and the with the help of team leader Tony Cheatham they reduced the print time from eight days to two days and twenty-two hours.
Throughout the process the teams learned about machining, prototyping, simulation, CAD, and safety, and about objective-based project planning and execution. They learned to design based on manufacturing capabilities and constraints, and to work within a budget. Perhaps most importantly, they learned the value of teamwork and organization, and that everyone contributes something unique and signiﬁcant.
The Davis Groupe, employees 2 interns each year and the employees and interns have a valuable learning experience from the collaboration.
