Building 3D objects layer-by-layer, commonly known as 3D Additive Manufacturing (AM), is one of the most sought after manufacturing technologies today for high value add engineering applications. Advantages of 3D AM technology include design flexibility and variety for high-mix low-volume production setting, capability to build intricate objects with internal features, which would be challenging for other manufacturing processes (e.g. molding, casting, forging, machining) to achieve, as well as minimum assembly required for moving parts. Being a tool-less manufacturing process, 3D AM offers faster lead time for complex and customised products. The various systems under the 3D AM umbrella share the main principle of building 3D objects layer-by-layer according to each layer’s cross-sectional area. The Wohlers Report 2017 stated that the worldwide AM industry was expected to grow from US$ 6 billion in 2016 to US$ 26.2 billion by 2022.
This course provides a holistic understanding of the concept and fundamentals of 3D AM. It will cover principles, methodology and usage of specific 3D AM systems, along with understanding of necessary post-processing of AM products, which are critical in identifying suitable 3D AM technology to manufacture customised and complex 3D parts. During this course, the participants’ awareness and interest in adopting 3D AM will be created. Furthermore, their competency skills in 3D AM will be enhanced, thus allowing them to acquire new skills, knowledge and technical expertise to stay relevant and competitive.
