Are you ready for a learning experience like no other? Join one, two, three or even four of our cumulative crash courses next month in an online conference and workshop environment. Learn and collaborate with a group to get discounted rates.
We’ll kick the month off with our Beginner Design for 3D Printing course starting March 5. This one-week course is packed with essential 3D printing knowledge including the complete design process, from conception through final prototype, and the ins and outs of 3D modeling programs (CAD). You’ll learn design rules from 3D design experts. And great news — no experience necessary.
In the following week, our one-week Advanced Design for 3D Printing starts March 12. This interactive online course and workshop will take your design skills further as we discuss advanced design programs and techniques — like animated assemblies and parametric design. You’ll get a deeper look into advanced design & printing principles, including applying what you’ve learned to different tools, with assignment prompts to help you create a dynamic design within just a few days.
In Essentials of 3D Printing with Metal on March 19, learn from experts Melanie Lang, co-founder and managing director of Formalloy and Frank Medina, Ph.D., consulting technical director at EWI and associate professor of mechanical engineering at UTEP. Lang will take you through an overview of the metal additive manufacturing process from start to finish, and will provide several use cases. Dr. Medina will discuss current technologies and material; methods to achieve desired surface finish, durability, and reliability; and more.
Our last crash course of the month Filaments, Materials and Software Considerations for 3D Printing starts on March 26. In this one-week online course, you’ll get a comprehensive look at the materials options for your design goals, including filaments, metals and plastics. You’ll learn how to assess various printing and tool options for a range of project goals, and help you make an informed decision for your design.
All of our crash courses include two live guest-speaker sessions and an online workshop. What this means:
Beginner Design for 3D Printing Advanced Design for 3D Printing Filaments, Materials and Software
Considerations for 3D Printing
Guest Speaker Sessions:
90 minutes of key principles, case studies, and lessons, presented in two livestream sessions with Q&A.
All live sessions will be recorded and posted in the online classroom for on-demand access.
An assignment to apply what you learn shared in a small group workshop with feedback from an industry expert.
All live content will be recorded and posted in the online classroom for on-demand access.
Thank you to our Beginner Design for 3D Printing and Advanced Design for 3D Printing sponsor, SelfCAD, for the support.
