Fundamentals of 3D Printing: How to move from an idea to a tangible device
Transforming Ideas Into Great Products is a one-day workshop designed to provide participants knowledge and hands-on experience using 3D printing (additive manufacturing) technology. The workshop is being held at the ECU Innovation Design Lab, a unique facility with over 30 MakerBot printers.
The workshop is an interactive session that delivers comprehensive introductory knowledge and understanding of the 3D printing / additive manufacturing industry. The workshop covers:equipment, software, materials, challenges,limitations and benefits. The innovation and design methodology will be described for the rapid prototyping process. Teams of participants will design and print 3D objects. The workshop will end with a discussion of applications to participants' workplace. The workshop is limited to 16 participants.
1. Describe approaches to additive manufacturing
2. Examine hardware and software available for 3D printing
3. Discuss the innovation and design approach to rapid prototyping process
4. Demonstrate the production of objects using 3D printing
