3D Printing Workshop

3D printing workshop for engineers –
learning by doing!

In order to use new technologies such as 3D printing purposefully and efficiently, it is not enough to get a theoretical overview. It is necessary to gain practical experience in application in order to be able to assess the opportunities and limits of the technology and to identify the equipment and systems suitable for one’s own goals and working conditions. The 3D printing market is currently very confusing and it is therefore advantageous to first familiarise oneself with the practice under professional guidance before planning the use of the technology in one’s own company.

Our 3D printing workshop prepares you optimally for your own practical application by taking you through the process chain of additive manufacturing and creating industry-relevant components. After a brief theoretical introduction to the equipment used, you will learn how to select the appropriate printing system based on given component data and material properties. In the second step, you will create your component and become familiar with the operation of the selected 3D printing device. At the end of the workshop, the group will analyze the parts for errors and make optimizations using CAD tools to highlight design difficulties.

Learning objectives

  • Become familiar with relevant 3D printing technologies and systems
