Additive Manufacture (3DPrint) (MANU-1802)

Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D Printing) uses an additive process to build parts layer by layer, as opposed to traditional methods like machining which remove material from a larger piece of stock. This course examines terminology and standards and then explains the various methods and types of industrial quality machines that exist for creating parts. Once fundamentals are understood the course will cover applications in various industries. Students will create parts on an industrial quality machine, and will also use lower cost 3D Printers to create parts. Methods of utilizing 3D CAD geometry, and scanning existing parts to create 3D models that can be 3D Printed, will be discussed. Students will have an opportunity to examine potential candidate parts for 3D printing within their own businesses.
