Tanya Gallagher, Associate Engineer for RAPIDLab, designed a device to hold ballistics cartridges, of varying sizes, centered in the same position every time. To do this, she came up with a spring loaded, 6 thooth, iris clamp design. This device will be used in the Applied Physics Department in Dr. Christopher Mann
’s laboratory by Glenn Pagano, Graduate Student, who is developing a way to create 3D images of ballistics cartridges
as a part of his thesis. All parts were designed in SolidWorks and printed out of polycarbonate (PC) in our Fortus 400mc 3D printer.
