3D Printing

What is 3D Printing

3D printing (3DP) or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. 3DP is well suited for co-creation, open innovation, and mass customization. It is gaining currently in a number of industries including aerospace and defense, automotive and healthcare. etc.

3DP is democratizing production as customers themselves can manufacture products wherever they are at home, office or school. In a way 3DP is bringing manufacturing to non-manufacturers the way PCs brought computing to non-traditional environments.

Why should you learn?

The course will introduce you to the methods and technologies of 3DP and its applications such as rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing, and personal/domestic printing.

The course imparts training in core additive manufacturing technologies Fused deposition modeling (FDM) which is commonly used for modeling, prototyping, and production applications.

The course equips you to use all digital tools and techniques necessary for exploring 3D designs and 3D printing. The course content includes:
