What is Additive Manufacture?

  • Compares the 7 Additive Manufacturing processes on their technology, output and applications.

  • Outlines the reasons why we would choose a particular technology over another.

Requirements Capture for Additive Manufacture

  • Recognises the purpose and benefit of capturing full AM requirements in a single step.

  • Identifies AM-specific factors and questions that should be established during requirements capture process for a given application.

Design for Additive Manufacture (DfAM)

  • Defines the unique design requirements of AM in relation to suitability, material and process selection.

  • Outlines the unique opportunities AM design has to offer.

  • Investigate the considerations and restrictions of DfAM (design for additive manufacture).

Health & Safety for Additive Manufacture

3D 360 Training Support Group on Facebook 

Our Facebook Training Support Group gives our candidates a platform to share ideas, show off some of their work and troubleshoot any issues. We look in from time to time to offer nuggets of wisdom or too offer fun projects to try out.

As well as additional learning the support group allows potential new candidates an insight into the kind of things they will be able too produce and the technical knowledge they will learn from our training.
