3D printing is revolutionizing industries by enabling the creation of complex parts with intricate geometries that were once impossible to produce using traditional methods. Academic institutions are investing in additive manufacturing technology to stay ahead of this shift in manufacturing and allow students to gain hands-on experience producing the parts they design. Having a 3D printer on campus also allows researchers to push the boundaries of the technology for advanced industry applications.

What you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • How educational institutions can integrate safe, classroom-friendly, metal 3D printing into their coursework to prepare students to enter the workforce
  • How higher-throughput, better-resolution plastic 3D printers can change the paradigm of what’s possible in maker space environments
  • How research facilities can utilize open-platform systems to push the limits of materials science and current process limitations
  • How can 3D printing expand design and engineering capabilities for student competition teams while providing a cheaper and faster alternative to machining complex parts?
