RCBI Design Works Lab

RCBI’s Design Works labs offer inventors and entrepreneurs the tools they need to take their idea or concept to reality by shaping their ideas into three-dimensional digital computer models that are then used to create working prototypes. Featuring computer workstations with SolidWorks 3D design software, the labs are set aside exclusively for clients who need to design their products.

RCBI offers the use of its FARO ScanArm that is fully integrated into SolidWorks via DezignWorks software. This combination allows you to use the Faro ScanArm to capture measurements directly into SolidWorks and use them to reverse engineer your part or product.

Design Works labs also feature Dimension 1200es and Fortus 900mc 3D production centers, ZPrinter 450 3D printer, Makerbot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D printers and CubeX 3D printers for rapid prototyping and tooling production. In addition, the labs are equipped with an array of specialized software, including SolidWorks, Rapidform, Mastercam, Geomagic, FARO CAM2, DezignWorks, CMM-Manager and 3D-Doctor.

CoWorks Podcasting Studio

Local podcaster Justin McElroy has set up a podcasting studio at CoWorks, a co-working space at 1005 Fifth Ave. in Huntington. The CoWorks space will be available for rent for $20 for up to four hours a month to record. For those who sign extended monthly contracts to develop their podcast, McElroy will also give consultation on best practices for recording, editing, distributing and, eventually if podcasts become successful, monetizing it.

Hacking Grading

Instructor feedback on writing can have an immense impact on students. Research on writing pedagogy demonstrates that students need and appreciate thoughtful feedback on their drafts in order to grow as writers. Ideally, we would be able to have one-on-one conferences with every student at every stage of writing every assignment. But due to heavy teaching loads, increasing class sizes, and limited office space/time, this is not possible for a vast majority of instructors. Therefore many – if not all – of us who teach writing intensive courses are constantly in search of grading hacks. The hack described includes pre-writing exercises and video feedback.

Knowing and Doing

Understanding the digital humanities curriculum.

Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities: An Open, Online Collection

Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities addresses the relationship between social media, open access, collaboration, and crowd-sourcing in the humanities. The speed, ubiquity, and diversity of online platforms, tools, techniques, and interactions have generated and continue to inform distinct cultures of knowledge creation. The social, institutional, and cultural changes within the academy have fundamentally reshaped knowledge creation and scholarly communication. The chapters in this volume work to describe this emergent discourse and seek to describe how social knowledge creation is transforming the humanities.
