A five-step process for applying the principles and techniques of precision machine design to lay the foundation for a successful precision machine or instrument

In this interactive course, you will learn to apply the principles and techniques of precision machine design in a systematic, five-step process to lay the foundation for a successful precision machine or instrument.

Each lesson represents a step in the process, introduces the relevant concepts and techniques, and demonstrates their application in a case study of the design of an interchangeable precision instrument mount.

Then it is your turn to apply those techniques to your own design. Helping you to choose or devise a project is part of the first lesson.

Once you have completed this course, you will have a foundation not only for a successful precision product development but also for continued professional development in the fields of precision machine design and optomechanical design.
