Abstract

Mechanical Drawing is a required professional foundation course for students majoring in mechanical specialties. However, as students don’t have actual engineering practice ability and are with poor spatial imagination, it is difficult for them to image plane figures as 3D shapes and to establish the concept of space. Therefore, teaching aids are necessary for them. As teaching aids output is little on the market, some of them have complicated structures and therefore need customizing. Their high production cost leads to high price.As a result, some schools cannot afford them. With the development and progress of IT, 3D printing technology is applied in teaching aid manufacturing, making manufacturing cost low and manufacturing fast and convenient. The application of 3D printing technology in Mechanical Drawing class will not only help students establish spatial imagination, but also stimulate their study interests.
