For the mechanical engineering aspect of this 4/3 MQP, a 3D printer was built and modified to print with NdFeB/PA-12 filament.The ability to 3D print NdFeB magnets allows for greater design freedom as well as lower costs, since the NdFeB is mixed with PA 12 Nylon plastic. For the professional writing aspect, a manual was written that explains, step-by-step, how to build the 3D printer that was built for the mechanical engineering MQP. This project also examined the best practices of technical manual writing. This manual was then provided to focus groups to obtain feedback on the manual itself and how well it represents the technical writing genre and any inconsistencies with technical writing best practices.
