This is an introduction to 3D Printing for SMEs.  This 3-hour session will explain the wide spectrum of Additive Manufacturing technologies in use today.  Building on a theoretical grounding, the session will demonstrate how to process a 3D part file in order to make it ready for 3D printing.  Furthermore, it may well include some hands-on demonstrations.

The workshop offers a comprehensive introduction to 3D Printing and how to apply it within a product development cycle.

The event will offer the following:

  • Illustrative discussions on the different 3D Printing technologies and their applications
  • Demonstrations of various 3D printing software, allowing you to choose what works best
  • Tips for Designing for 3D Printing
  • Learn useful and advanced setup and print techniques to achieve optimal results.
  • See 3D printers in action (video and live)
  • 3D Printing to quickly produce proof-of-concept and prototype products to accelerate your product design to manufacture cycle
  • Gain a better understanding of 3D printing and the model preparation software that supports it

Expert speaker

The workshop will be delivered by Dana Church.  Dana has many years’ industry experience in design and manufacturing.  In particular, integrating 2D and 3D Design disciplines with disruptive digital technologies into the production process.

Further information and registration

This is just one part of a double bill of events for SMEs exploring design technology. It is further complemented by a laser-cutting event in the afternoon (12:30-4pm).  As a result, we encourage delegates to book on to both events and enjoy the whole day with us.  Of course, we also give you the option to book on to just one event.

This event starts at 9am with registration and a networking breakfast.  Thereafter the main presentations will be delivered from 9:30am.  At 12:30pm the event will end with a complimentary, networking lunch.

While this is a FREE event, we only have a limited number of spaces available.  So don’t delay, book your place today.  If you would like any further information about this event before booking your place, please email us.

Although this event is free to attend, attendees must register in advance. In order to attend this event you must be eligible for support from the Enabling Innovation Programme, which supports SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Enabling Innovation is a three-year collaboration between Nottingham Trent University, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Derby.
