Industry of tomorrow – 3D printing workshop
Gain practical experience and a first-hand account as to the ways in which 3D printing is changing manufacturing. This workshop will introduce you to the world’s first, fully-automated, cloud connected, 3D printer. It was created with the user in mind and is both easy-to-use, and easy-to-use and easy-to-share. Understand the previous obstacles that created challenges for the 3D printing “manufacturer,” and see how the technology evolved to print, 24-7 without any human intervention. Students will work within the constraints of material and size, in team design challenges, leveraging 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software. The objective of the course is to illustrate the collaborative and deterministic 3D design process in a hands-on workshop that takes students from problem-through-prototype.
