This half-day session is designed to give you an introduction to the world of 3D printing and its applications for the real world. You will explore the origins of 3D printing, the different types of machines and materials available and then get to try it out for yourself. Part theoretical, part practical, this workshop will allow you to increase your knowledge of 3D printing and give you the opportunity to go home with an incredible model of your own head!
“The workshop was a huge success – the laid-back , informal approach was really appreciated and everyone found the team really engaging. The presentation was pitched at the right level and the number of examples of the applications of 3D printing was brilliant. We all really enjoyed being given a tour of the space and the workshops.” – Shilpa Vyas, Director, User Experience, GfK
Delivered by expert technicians with 10+ years experience in digital manufacturing techniques and processes, the workshop enables participants to gain an excellent foundation of knowledge in this area.
