Our course is intended for individuals, companies and educational units interested in starting a business in the field of 3D printing who do not yet have a 3D printer or have just become its owner. It aims to show what a 3D printer can be used for in the area of small business and broadly understood education, as well as to help in choosing the most optimal equipment for work.
The course focuses on the basics of 3D design and optimization of 3D printing files when working with popular desktop-class 3D printers. The course does not concern learning how to use 3D printers themselves.
The courses are held on-line, using the most popular remote video-conference applications:
- Microsoft Teams (preferred)
- Google Meet (preferred)
- Zoom Meetings (preferred)
- Cisco Webex Meetings
The average duration of the course is approx. 3 hours + additional time for questions and individual consultations.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR AND WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM IT THE MOST?
- people who have not had any contact with 3D printing and 3D design (or technical design in general) so far; possibly people who “used to design something” but do not even remember the name of the program they used then?
- people who need a 3D printer to work – even if it is only hobby work (modeling, DIY, upgrading mechanical or electronic equipment – e.g. drones)
- people working in the educational sector who will want to conduct classes with children and are looking for simple tools for work.
WHO IS THE TRAINING NOT ADDRESSED TO AND WILL BE BORED OF IT?
- people who have had 3D printers for some time and are good at it
- people who work with CAD class software on a daily basis and know the difference between .STL and .STEP
- people who do not have a 3D printer and do not design in 3D, but professionally deal with e.g. programming or are numerical machine operators; they know what GitHub is and how to downgrade the software.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN DURING THE TRAINING?
- Is 3D printing really something you want to do (privately or professionally)?
- Which 3D printer to choose (budget vs. operating costs vs. ease of use)?
- Where to download free models for 3D printing and how to find out if they are suitable for printing at all?
- How to design simple things using free tools – eg Microsoft 3D Builder?
- How to edit / repair 3D models?
- a 3D printer is just another tool for work – a short introduction to the world of additive technologies
- how is a 3D print made?
- 3D printing from plastic or light-curing resins? comparison of FDM / FFF and SLA / UV LCD technologies
- review of the most popular 3D printers on the market – from PLN 500.00 to PLN 25,000.00
- review of materials for 3D printing, i.e. what will we never print on a cheap 3D printer?
- where to get free designs for 3D printing?
- working with free models for 3D printing – optimization or design flaws preventing their easy or correct printing
- work with Microsoft 3D Builder
- review of other free and paid 3D design software.
- any computer working in the Windows 10 environment, with min. 2 GB of RAM
- video camera and microphone for communication
- one of the above-mentioned platforms for on-line teleconferences installed (selection to be agreed)
- Free Microsoft 3D Builder installed (download).
- the price applies to groups of up to 4 people; above the limit: an additional 50% of the amount
- 100% prepayment
- we always issue a VAT invoice (also for natural persons).
