A team of University of Wisconsin-Platteville students in the spring Manufacturing Processes class fared well at a national competition.

The project on "Hand-Operated Mixing Cup," authored by the quartet of Sean Pietri, a senior from Reedsburg, Wis.; Chad

Steger, a senior from Theresa, Wis.; Stephen VandeZande, a senior from Fond du Lac, Wis.; and Riley Zehner, a senior from Stoughton, Wis., won second place in the 2013 Direct Digital Manufacturing annual competition, sponsored by the Rapid Technologies and

Additive Manufacturing Community and Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

The students, under the direction of professor John Obielodan, applied the fundamental principles of additive manufacturing taught in the class to select materials, processes and process-specific product features in the class projects.
