Additive Manufacturing Systems
ONLINE COURSE
* Webcam and microphone are needed


Prerequisites:
No prior course is required but you should have a reasonable understanding of computers and technology. You don't have to know programming or electronics, but basic computer navigation, ability to search the web for information, and being generally comfortable with technical concepts would be helpful.


Course Overview
3D Printing technology (Additive Manufacturing) has proven itself to be a legitimate industry skill over the years and is necessary for anyone interested in competing in the manufacturing marketplace. Iterating design modifications can be done in a fraction of the time over traditional methods and testing for fit, stress, and other elements can save materials cost as well. When used in conjunction with 3D design skills you have an effective technological process to keep you ahead of the game.

In class we will discuss each component of this cutting edge technology and what their capabilities are. We will also assess their limitations and a comparison over using CNC milling machines and/or lathes. We feel that knowing when and where to apply your technology is greatly important and too often people will try to use a new tool for all their projects rather than integrate it into the current processes.

Our group has been deeply involved in the additive manufacturing process since 2007 and has developed an expertise over the years in exactly what is possible with these machines. Our developer Damian Cianci, has been to training events at Saddleback College in Dana Point California, where he had a chance to meet Terry Wohlers of the Wohlers Report (the premier publication on the state of the 3D printing industry) along with many others in the field, as well as the Materialise Training Center in Ann Arbor Michigan to work with fixing 3D model geometry for printing. He's also been a part of a National Science Foundation grant for the dissemination of standards in education, designed and printed models for the Boeing Company, and continues to work on the practical application, maintenance and modification of this fascinating technology.
