The SteamPunk Bionics Academy was born out of the need for technical personnel trained in the science (and art) of 3D scanning of the human body, design and editing of those same scanned organic models in a true, full-function CAD environment, integrating those organic models into a mechanical framework via a full-function CAD environment, and rapidly producing those biomech devices and components via 3D printing and CNC milling in house, affordably and quickly.
The only product the SteamPunk Bionics Academysells is education. We guide you to resources to obtain the software and hardware required. We have no financial relationships with these vendors, other than the fact that we have purchased product from them, just like you may choose to. Our senior instructor, Rick E. Sevier BOCO CPOA CPED, has over 30 years experience using and teaching CAD and biomech design/manufacturing/fabrication in various commercial, healthcare and university environments. Rick holds degrees in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Technical Education from Oklahoma State University, where he taught in the O & P Program for many years. Rick's personal goal is to make learning easy, fun and exciting for all of his students, no matter what their level of experience is.
The SteamPunk Bionics Academyis a division of CFS Allied Health Education, a provider of quality ABC/BOC pre and post certification level educational resources to the Orthotic, Prosthetic, Pedorthic, Pharmacy and general Healthcare community since 2004. It is self-funded and family owned.
