Introduction to 3D Printing

Introduction to 3D Printing

With increasing costs, supply chain issues, and the need for rapid prototyping and manufacturing processes, Additive Manufacturing (specifically 3D printing) has become the solution many companies have turned to. This course has been designed to address and overcome the challenges small and medium-sized enterprises face when adopting 3D printing technology.

Topics covered include the various 3D printing technologies, advantages/disadvantages of each, and hands-on learning to understand the components, operations, testing and maintenance. Emphasis is also placed on understanding the software involved in 3D printing including Standard Triangle Language (STL) files and RS-274 (G-Code).

**Note: This is a hands-on course providing participants an opportunity to interact with 3D printers and associated software.
