Course Description

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three-dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable, and easier to use than other additive manufacturing technologies.

3D printers offer product developers the ability to print parts and assemblies made of several materials with different mechanical and physical properties in a single build process. This module aims to introduce the learner to the history and background of 3D printing.

What are the requirements?

  • Basic understanding of the IT industry
  • Knowledge of the English language

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Know the history of printing
  • Understand the background of printing that led to 3D printing
  • Learn the different ways of printing throughout history
  • Know the different companies and services that offer 3D printing

What is the target audience?

  • Career-driven IT professionals that want to stay relevant in their roles in the I.T. industry.
  • Anyone looking to gain an understanding of 3D Printing and its practical application in an IT and Non-IT environment.
