The training process

Specialization course in 3D Press

The 3D Specialization Course: Print your Design teaches you how to create customized prototypes thanks to the 3d printing, using the tools - methodological and technological - provided by the teachers during the training course. This course has been designed for all fans of the sector and especially for designers who feel the need to give life to their projects and shape their ideas, passing from the concept to the subject in the shortest possible time. Today 3D printing is an increasingly used technique, which finds applications in many sectors: from biomedical to food, from rapid prototyping for design atself-construction (and change or hacking) of objects. Learning about the techniques, materials and new possibilities of working and printing in 3D will give students and professionals the opportunity to have greater control and awareness of their work. Each participant will print his 3D model, acquiring technical knowledge on the printing process, on the materials, on the Cad / Cam conversion and on the finishing techniques of the realized mold.
The 3D Specialization Course in Printing is aimed at professional students and designers, architects and engineers, artisans and companies working in the field of the project / product, but also to anyone with a strong interest in technological and process innovation. This full-immersion course allows fans of making, 3D printing, rapid prototyping, knowledge economy, programmed electronics and Open Source software to implement the latest 3D modeling and printing technologies in their everyday work.
A path also open to unemployed / NEET subjects who want to retrain and get closer to the technological-scientific world.
