Highlands College Drafting Technology Student Learns and Contributes to Campus Awareness

Highlands College of Montana Tech drafting technology student Chandler Hawley of Billings, Montana, accepted the challenge to design and produce a 3D CAD modeled keychain fob for the Montana Tech Rape Prevention Education (RPE) Task Force. The keychain fob displays the ‘Frontstander’ symbol with the words “Be A Frontstander” and the Montana Tech logo. The fobs are for distribution during April Sexual Awareness month, and it signifies the wearer supports the school’s effort to provide a safe and caring community.

Under the direction of Rebecca Morris, Highlands College drafting technology instructor, the keychain fob was created by Chandler Hawley, a first year drafting student, as a project for a 3D CAD modeling and printing class. He is learning that the design and production process can be a time consuming and a detail focused job. He has learned to use Autodesk Fusion 360 to make the computer model and then prints them on one of the ten 3D printers available for the drafting students to use.
