REMOTE MACHINING SERVICE
In response to COVID-19 we were able to pivot off the success of the Educational Digital Twin platform to layer live video and audio streaming as well as screensharing of the CNC control and CAD/CAM computer desktop to build an integrated environment where a remote student can observe and guide the manufacturing of their part in real- time with the local assistance of a Bechtel Center peer mentor. The remote student is able to choose between:
- The CNC control screen
- Video from inside the CNC
- Mobile camera for viewing stock, tool building, and the supporting mentor
During the process constant communication is happening between the mentor and student.
