Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) Course
“Introduction to Additive Manufacturing”, or 3D printing, provides an overview of additive manufacturing: including history, advantages, basic steps, methods and materials. Additive manufacturing is a quickly growing industry that allows rapid prototyping and the creation of complex, functional parts. These parts include end-use parts and traditional manufacturing tooling. Additive Manufacturing/3D printing encompasses a variety of build methods, such as material jetting and material extrusion.
An understanding of the AM basics is especially useful for anyone working in the manufacturing industry. AM methods often streamline manufacturing processes and improve products and profitability. After completing this class, users will have gained important Additive Manufacturing knowledge such as different AM methods and processes, the uses of AM and the potential for future industrial growth.
