Set up and produce 3D print

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Determine the print requirements

1.1 Printed object requirements are determined against specifications and confirmed with client

1.2 Appropriate printer and materials are selected to meet client specifications

1.3 Data files are uploaded into the printer software and 3D model is checked to ensure it meets specifications

1.4 Quality of data file is assessed and possible adjustments are discussed with client

1.5 File is adjusted and saved in required printer format

2. Prepare the 3D printer

2.1 Print construction time is determined and client approval obtained

2.2 Personal protective equipment (PPE) is selected and fitted in accordance with work health and safety (WHS) procedures

2.3 Prestart checks are conducted on the 3D printer to ensure correct operation

2.4 Printer settings are adjusted for specified tolerances and client specifications

2.5 Printer is charged with specified construction material

2.6 Printer build platform is prepared according to manufacturer's operating procedures

3. Operate and monitor the 3D printer

3.1 Printer is operated in accordance with manufacturer's operating procedures and WHS procedures

3.2 Sensor displays and readings are checked so that they remain within the correct operating parameters throughout the job

3.3 Printed object is monitored to check that it is forming as per client specifications, and adjusted as necessary

3.4 Consumables are monitored and recharged as required

3.5 Errors and faults in operation are reported to relevant personnel for maintenance or repair

4. Remove and prepare model for client

4.1 Printed 3D object is removed from the printer bed according to manufacturer's operating procedures

4.2 Support framework is removed using appropriate tools, chemicals and PPE, according to manufacturer's operating procedures

4.3 3D object is cleaned and prepared against client specifications

5. Finalise the shut down and reset printer

5.1 Printer is reset according to the manufacturer's operating procedures

5.2 Printer and worksite are cleaned according to organisational procedures and manufacturer's operating procedures

5.3 Printer is shut down according to organisational procedures
