Tackett publishes guide to remote access training in additive manufacturing

This book chapter describes best practice for remote-access AM laboratories that are available to under-served student populations.

Properly designed remote facilities allow students to request parts and view their fabrication live. Active involvement in the build process improves student learning about the additive manufacturing technology.  Remote-access laboratories are a cost-effective method to reach widespread students. Coauthors for this book chapter are from Tennessee Tech University, Edmonds Community College, Sinclair Community College and Oak Ridge National Laboratory
