NEW! Short course on 3D printing taught by MEPE Instructors offered this fall!

A short course on 3D Printing/additive manufacturing will be taught by two MEPE instructors, Drs. Kris Stokes and Nicole Zacharia. The class is “Utilizing 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing) in Your Organization,” offered September 28-29. The course will be taught at UW Madison campus and also an online attendance option is available.

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

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
