The implications of additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, span the entire product lifecycle and compel us to reimagine how products are designed, produced, and delivered to customers around the globe. Emerging industrial AM processes can be used with polymers, metals, composites, and other advanced materials; combined with advanced digital design tools, we are now poised to rapidly deploy AM in a true industrial context. More than half of all parts made by 3D printing are already for end-use applications.
It is imperative that engineers, designers, and executives take the steps now to understand how and when to leverage AM in their roles and organizations. In this online course, you will study the technical fundamentals, industrial applications, and business implications of AM, and acquire the knowledge and confidence to create innovative solutions using AM in both design and production.
