Abstract
On many occasions, the end-of-course project turns out to be the student¿s first point of contact with what industry is really like and becomes a fundamental milestone in their learning throughout their degree course. The complete development of machines provides opportunities for end-of-course projects where students can apply computer aided design and manufacturing technologies, as well as the most advanced rapid prototyping technologies. Coming into contact with these tools, so highly valued by Industry, gives added value to the training of these students, since, on the one hand, it enables them to look in-depth at the use of design programs, calculation by finite elements, and manufacturing simulation, and on the other hand, to apply concepts learnt during the entire course. As an application, we present the complete development of a ¿Cyclo¿ type planetary gear assembly carried out in the Machine Engineering Division of Madrid Technical University (U.P.M.), during 2006. The use of the ¿Rapid Prototyping Technologies¿ available in the U.P.M.¿s Product Development Laboratory, has enabled the prototypes of the machine at the centre of this project to be manufactured, which means the pre-production stage has been attained.
