I’m currently taking Alex Slocum’s 2.70/2.77 FUNdaMENTALS of Precision Product Design course, which is based around his *excellent* FUNdaMENTALS of Design book. You can read FUNdaMENTALS here (it’s all useful material, but Chapter 3 is particularly important), and if you want to laugh hysterically while learning machine design, watch the video lectures for 2.75 (online MITx course covering some of the same material) here at 1.5x speed.

Anyway – this is my course webpage! I’ll be posting weekly updates here, covering my work for the week on my semester project; my homework (not as boring as it sounds); my lab work (likewise – I’m going to try to build a CNC stage entirely out of household paper products in Week 2); and neat machines & devices that I come across. Stay tuned!
