Course Overview
Whether you are new to 3D printing technology or are looking to close a few knowledge gaps, this introductory course will provide an insight into the potential of 3D printing, whilst offering insights into the history and the reality of 3D printing.

3D printing is an enabling technology that encourages and drives innovation with unprecedented design freedom while being a tool-less process that reduces prohibitive costs and lead times. Components can be designed specifically to avoid assembly requirements with intricate geometry and complex features created at no extra cost.

By the end of the course the participant will be able to explain why 3D printing is used and identify suitable 3D printing methods. They will also be able to describe the safety features, hazards, and risks of 3D printing and identify the main components of a 3D printer. The course will culminate in a practical printing task where learners will create a simple 3D printed item.

The course is delivered using a variety of hardware including 3D printers, computers, and software.
