3D printing education is really taking off these days as the technology complements the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum quite well. Even if this is the case, there is still a high demand for straightforward teaching materials and resources that break the technology down well and inspire teachers and students to get excited about learning how to design and 3D print what they want. Along these lines, San Diego-based SolidProfessor announces it has designed two new 3D printing courses to add to the growing list of 3D printing educational tools available for people who need them.
SolidProfessor has been around for 13 years, and it has developed a good reputation for its high-quality and award-winning online video courses and tutorials for all-skill levels in CAD, CAM, and BIM. Now, there are new options from the company: “Introduction to 3D Printing” and “Introduction to 3D Printing with MakerBot.” These courses are based on SolidProfessor’s time-tested learning methodology, and they also have excellent search capabilities in case students have questions they need answered.
The company describes how both courses, “Introduction to 3D Printing” and “3D Printing with MakerBot,” help users get a firm grasp on all aspects of 3D printing technologies, and learn how to combine their CAD skills with the technology:
“Introduction to 3D Printing will show free resources that they can use to start modeling right away. For experienced users, they will learn about more advanced tools and technologies that can be used to take designs from digital representations of designs to physical objects that will be held in their hands. The ‘3D Printing with MakerBot’ course was designed to provide a solid understanding of MakerBot’s award-winning software ‘MakerBot Desktop’ and it teaches the fundamental concepts and essential strategies to help users get successful prints out of MakerBot’s fantastic printers time and time again.”
These two courses offer two different learning options, with the Introduction course able to accommodate beginners and those with more 3D printing experience, while the MakerBot desktop course is, of course, designed for people working specifically with MakerBot 3D printers. Jason Wright, Head of Content Development at SolidProfessor, explains why the company felt the need to develop these courses:
“3D printing is ushering in a new age of reconnecting designers with manufacturing. The Maker movement isn’t just for hobbyists anymore. Micro-facturing and mass customization are permeating and changing the industry as a whole. We decided to bring our members this course because we believe that 3D Printing is an important component of the future of the computer-aided design industry.”
If you are already a member with an account for either SolidProfessor for SOLIDWORKS or SolidProfessor for Autodesk Inventor, then the courses will be added for free to your accounts. If you are not a SolidProfessor member, then it may be a good time to become one as SolidProfessor is getting much more into the 3D printing education game: you may want to stay ahead of that technology learning curve!
