CPDR is a laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and has vision to grow up to become a center of excellence in product design and realization in the form of rapid and efficient prototyping as well as rapid additive manufacturing of low-volume products with high geometric creativity. The laboratory has always been buzzing with creative activity with several PhD research, Higher Degree dissertation and First Degree thesis and large number of undergraduate project students. One UGC major research project has been completed and it has been supporting to several other funded research projects. The research papers published out of this have been displayed in the notice board of the Lab and more details of the research work are displayed as poster presentations in the Lab. The laboratory has been supporting the pedagogy of several courses including DE G531: Product Design, ME ME/MF F342: Computer Aided Design, ME G611: Computer Aided Analysis and Design, ME G512: Finite Element Methods, ME/MF F241: Machine Design & Drawing and ME F416: Reverse Engineering and Rapid Prototyping. The laboratory has also been providing prototyping services to several faculty members and students in the Department, various departments in the Institute as well as some outside organizations, thus proving to be an indispensable cog in the wheel for innovators. The CPDR has an additive manufacturing machine for rapid prototyping, one surface roughness Profilometer for quality control studies of prototypes, grid marking machine for formability studies and several high end computer aided design and engineering software including LS-DYNA, COMSOL, ANSYS, Matlab and Design Expert. Order has been placed for a set of demonstration.
