Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a rapidly growing component of the manufacturing industry. The process allows rapid prototyping of complex components, often at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing methods. Major topics covered this introductory course include:
Learning Goals:· Understanding of today's 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies and techniques including machine types, variety of consumer and professional grade machine options, and related tools, jigs, and fixtures· Awareness of current and future 3D printing and additive manufacturing capabilities including prototyping, production runs, supply chain/just-in-time manufacturing, and digitized inventory· Introductory knowledge of materials used in 3D printing and additive manufacturing including thermoplastics, polymers, and metals
Note 1: This course will be held online with rolling enrollment.
Note 2: This course will run three weeks from the start date as scheduled with Sinclair once enrollment is complete.
