Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, can be intimidating to approach. The intention of this course is to provide a practical introduction to the various technologies and workflows utilized in this rapidly growing field.
After this course, we expect that attendees should be able to:
- Communicate the value of additive manufacturing to their parent organization, vendors, and customers.
- Provide a use case and potential ROI for using additive manufacturing technologies
- Create simple designs and successfully print using Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) techniques
Who Should Attend?
- Plant maintenance personnel responsible for part replacement
- Engineers designing new machines or prototypes
- R&D personnel using custom equipment and materials for evaluation
Through a combination of visual aids and hands-on experience, attendees will learn several topics, including:
- Types of 3D printing technologies
- Materials used in 3D printing
- Applications of 3D printing
- Workflow approaches for 3D printing
- Identify common design and troubleshooting techniques
