3D print Basic

In this course, you get a 360-degree introduction to 3D printing as a manufacturing method, so you’ll get a better understanding of the technology. Thus, you are better equipped to assess when and how 3D printing could make sense to you.

With this free online course, you get a 360-degree introduction to 3D printing where you learn about the technical, design and economic benefits of the technology – and much more. The course provides an overview of widespread technologies and materials and also looks at sustainability. The course can be completed in both Danish and English and is available online for 365 days.

Get to know 3D printing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) - or 3D printing - is increasingly used as a production resource and thus no longer only for prototypes. Several independent analyses point to 3D printing as one of the manufacturing technologies that Danish industry can use to improve competitiveness and maintain Danish production jobs.

In this course, you get a 360-degree introduction to 3D printing as a manufacturing method, so you’ll get a better understanding of the technology. Thus, you are better equipped to assess when and how 3D printing could make sense to you. With the Danish Technological Institute as a course provider, you are also sure to get an independent and objective review of the technology.

Benefits

  • Insight into the history of 3D printing as a manufacturing technology
  • Overview of the advantages and limitations of using the individual 3D printing technologies
  • Basic knowledge of materials and process steps
  • An understanding of design for 3D printing - and what you should be aware of when designing for the technology.
  • Knowledge of 3D printing in a sustainability context
  • Insight into cost calculations as well as value chain considerations and impacts

Duration

The course consists of 7 modules and can be completed in just under 2 hours.
 

Format

This online course consists of 7 video modules, which you can access for 365 days upon registration. Each module consists of a video, and in addition there is a short introduction which explains how the course works. Slides in the videos are in English but the speak is made in both Danish and English.
 
You complete the course modules via your computer or tablet with audio and access to the Internet. You can control when and in what order you want to complete the modules - and they can be paused along the way. Consequently, you do not have to complete all modules at once.
 

Were you looking for another online 3D printing course?

In addition to this basic course, we offer 9 different online 3D printing courses. 7 of the courses go in depth with each of the 7 overall 3D printing technologies, and in addition there is a course focusing on quality control, and one that makes a thorough review of the economic perspectives. You will find the courses here.
