Winter Training Program on 3D Printing

Course Introduction

3D Printing is an Additive Manufacturing technique that creates a physical object from a virtual 3D CAD model by depositing successive layers of material. They work like the traditional inkjet printers excepting that instead of ink, a 3D printer deposits desired material to manufacture an object from its digital format. 3D printing and rapid prototyping, in general, are widely claimed to have revolutionized not only the manufacturing industry but also many other walks of life like medicine, aerospace and automotive industry. This program on 3D Printing helps the participants understand the design, functioning and operation of a basic 3D Printer.

Course Highlights

  • Understand the basics and applications of 3D Printing
  • Learn about the materials, designing CAD models and working of a 3D Printer
  • The participants will get 3D printed models that they design

Course Structure

  • History of 3d printers
  • Necessity of rapid prototyping
  • Purpose and applications(current purposes and applications in industry and home use)
  • Types of printers (Processes involved with different types) (timeline from model to Prototype)
