3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, offers a range of advantages in comparison to more traditional manufacturing techniques. It offers greater flexibility in terms of design, parts can be created quicker, and be produced at a lower cost.
In this two-part online course, you will be given a broad introduction to 3D printing. Whether you are new to additive manufacturing or are looking to expand your knowledge of this exciting technology, this course will offer an insight into the different types of printers, materials, and applications available today.
You will also be looking at 3D printing workflow, the process of taking an initial concept or idea, through to the final fabrication of a physical product. Our training material will guide you through the entire 3D printing process, providing you with the knowledge that will allow you to produce your first 3D printed part.
Upon completion, you will have a greater understanding of how objects are made and how designs can be improved using additive manufacturing techniques allowing you to create your own 3D printed parts by designing them yourself in a CAD package or by making use of one of the many libraries of digital models available online.
