One thing we pride ourselves on at 3DPrint.com is that while we’re primarily a news site, dedicated to bringing you the most important, up-to-date information from every corner of the 3D printing world, we’re not just a news site. Over the past year in particular, we’ve been expanding our role as an educational resource through a series of webinars presented in collaboration with leading 3D technology companies on topics such as cutting-edge 3D body imaging technology and its impact on the fashion industry; choosing the right 3D printing technology to fit your needs; and a detailed look at one of the most common forms of metal additive manufacturing.
We’ll be continuing to offer educational webinars, but as we first announced back in October, now we’re giving you even more opportunities to learn with us through a new series of online training courses that will cover the essentials of 3D printing, from basic to advanced levels. Two courses, both four weeks long and structured like a live event with featured guest speakers and assignments to be completed throughout the week, are currently open for registration. Beginner Design for 3D Printing will start you off with everything you need to know to begin working with 3D design and printing, including CAD basics, design principles and basic tools.
Beginner Design will be held on Thursdays March 9, 16, 23 and 30 from 2-3 PM ET. The first class will be “Beginning Design Principles,” followed by “Engineering Principles,” “Sculptural Designs and Animation,” and “Intro to Programmatic Modeling.” Participants will be taken through the full design process from conception to prototyping, and at the end of the four weeks will receive a complimentary 3D print of their design, courtesy of Formlabs.
No experience is necessary to sign up for Beginner Design, which leads directly into Advanced Design for 3D Printing. Those who complete Beginner Design can move right into the next course, and those who already have some experience are welcome to sign up, as well. Advanced Design will take place in the same Thursday time slot on April 6, 13, and 20, with classes entitled “Programmatic Modeling,” “Voxel,” and “Texture + 3D Printing.” From April 20-27, participants will create and refine a final model which will be entered into a class-wide contest. The winner will be announced in a future article on 3DPrint.com, and all participants will receive a complimentary 3D print of their designs from Formlabs.
“Offering these new educational courses is as exciting for us as, we hope, it is for our community,” says Sarah Goehrke, Editor-in-Chief of 3DPrint.com. “We here at 3DPrint.com have been striving tirelessly to become a go-to resource to meet our community’s needs, and have been responding to the growing desires of an increasingly well-informed 3D printing community. Our team is thrilled now to make available these resources in education.”
Each course is $249 to register, with an early bird rate of $199 until January 31. All participants will receive a certificate from 3DPrint.com upon the completion of each course.
“We are constantly working to make 3DPrint.com a primary resource for our community, and educational training is an initiative we have long felt would contribute greatly. Recent survey results and individual feedback confirm to us our audience’s strong appetite for 3DP education opportunities,” says John Meckler of 3DR Holdings (3DPrint.com’s parent company). “We know our readers’ additive manufacturing experience ranges from beginner to advanced and so decided to offer exactly these options (Beginner Design for 3D Printing and Advanced Design for 3D Printing) as topics for our initial classes.”
Feedback is always appreciated, so please feel free to share any thoughts or suggestions you may have about these course offerings, future training or 3DPrint.com as a whole by emailing us at email@example.com. Discuss in the Online Training forum at 3DPB.com.
