This online course focuses on the 3D printing technology Fused Deposition Modeling - or FDM. The course gives you a 360-degree introduction to the technology, where you learn about e.g. the printing process, typical applications of the technology, types of materials, design options and the different types of finishing. This will give you an understanding of the benefits and limitations of the technology so you can better assess when it makes sense to apply. The course can be completed in both Danish and English and is available online for 365 days.
Learn more about Fused Deposition Modeling
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, we go in depth with the 3D printing technology Fused Deposition Modeling. Here you get an overview of all the different aspects of the technology, so you are better equipped to assess whether Fused Deposition Modeling makes sense for you - and when. With the Danish Technological Institute as a course provider, you are also sure to get an independent and objective review of the technology.

The course consists of 12 modules and can be completed in approximately 45 minutes.
This online course consists of several 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. There are test questions along the way to ensure the understanding of the content.
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.
