Topic outline

  • Unfortunately, all practical work training sessions with 3D printers are cancelled for the whole spring term 2021.

    We hope to resume the workshops and lab access for the autumn term 2021, depending on the covid- situation.

    Practical Work Training with 3D printers

    The course is organized as a one-day workshop in every period. The workshop is an introduction to the world of 3D printing - No previous knowledge or experience is required.

    After the workshop, students are able to individually use 3D printers to produce physical objects from digital files. Students will get familiar with the Ultimaker 3D printers and the Ultimaker Cura slicing software for print file preparation. They will have a better understanding what 3D printing is and what it can be used for. The course material (will be uploaded later to MyCourses > Materials) provides additional links and resources for further learning and exploration.

    After the workshop completion, students are given access to an online calendar they can use to book the ADDLAB 3D printers for personal projects. For students who wish to obtain 1 ECTS credit, an additional exercise is given during the workshop.
