June 4 - Day 3: What’s Next After 3D Printing?
Focus on Fundamentals 
6/4/2015  Post a comment
Get practical knowledge on choosing a viable production method for your part. Could you use additive manufacturing for final part production, or would you need CNC machining or injection molding? Each process has its advantages and disadvantages, including material processability, geometry limitations and part repeatability. Learn the different techniques used for quick-turn, low- to mid-volume part production before a potential shift to large-scale manufacturing with steel tooling.
June 3 - Day 2: Design Considerations for Manufacturability
Focus on Fundamentals 
6/3/2015  Post a comment
This class presents an evaluation of material options as well as performance factors that impact the design and engineering of additive parts. Following the prototyping stage, material choice and part geometry have to be finalized, in addition to production planning and manufacturing process selection. You’ll learn how a 3D-printed concept evolves into a functional prototype for form and fit testing and then into a final part that is suitable for increased production.
June 2 - Day 1: Review of Industrial Additive Manufacturing Options
Focus on Fundamentals 
6/2/2015  Post a comment
The Maker and desktop 3D printing movements may have been dominating the general press, but this class will focus on comparing industrial-grade additive manufacturing technologies like stereolithography, selective laser sintering and direct metal laser sintering used to produce higher quality prototypes and low-volume production parts.
February 5 - Day 3: Design for Direct Manufacturing with 3D Printing

Compliance standards established by IEC, ISO and other regulatory organizations provide guidelines for manufacturers to follow when designing, producing and testing consumer electronics designs. There are also global standards to keep in mind. Learn more about the various standards that designers should be aware of in order to be compliant.
February 4 - Day 2: 3D Printing Materials for Direct Manufacturing
Focus on Fundamentals

Manufacturing demands the right materials for product performance. In many cases 3D printing can (additive manufacturing) deliver. Get a fast and comprehensive brief on what materials are now available in 3D printing – the list is growing! We’ll also make sure you know what details to consider and touch on standards that are often used to qualify a material for an application.
February 3 - Day 1: When to Use 3D Printing for Direct Manufacturing
Focus on Fundamentals
