Though our PIRCTC Drafting & Engineering Technology students have been hard at work on their dual enrollment courses with the University of Maine College of Engineering. They have worked on a few neat projects. One project is a collaborative project with the University of Maine Advanced Manufacturing to reverse engineer and fabricate a new radiator cap and knob for the Maine Forest & Logging Museum’s 1928 Lombard Model “T” dump truck. Using old photos and measurements of the radiator opening, Ethan Cassidy created 3D Solidworks models of the parts and a set of shop drawings. The file for the knob was then sent down to the Advanced Manufacturing Facility where it was 3D printed in metal. Meanwhile Ethan 3D printed in plastic (using the PIRCTC 3D printers) a pattern of the cover itself which will be used as a pattern to sand cast a cast-iron cover. Ethan is a Senior and is planning to attend UMO for Mechanical/Biomedical Engineering.
