Material Extrusion 3D Printing Design and Operations Workshop

Are you keen to learn about 3D Printing?

This is a free-to-attend course open to anyone aged 18 and above, which you will receive a certificate upon successful completion. Participants should attend all 5 sessions to successfully meet the learning objectives.

This course will be delivered across 4 days, face-to-face at Brunel University London in Michael Sterling Building, Room MCST 158. This training comprises five independent learning units covering the following topics:

1. 3D Printing Material Extrusion (MEX) Overview (21st April 2022, 10am-2pm)

2. Introduction to Computer Aided Design (CAD) (22nd April 2022, 10am-2pm)

3. Design for Material Extrusion (MEX) (28th April 2022, 10am-2pm)

4. 3D Printer Operation and Practical Applications (29th April 2022, 10am-2pm)

5. 3D Printing Project “Do it Yourself” (29th April 2022, 2.30pm-6pm)

At the end of each learning unit, there will be a summative assessment of multiple-choice questions to evaluate your knowledge. An online questionnaire will also be distributed to obtain feedback about the training course.

After this course you will be able to:

· Increase the level of knowledge on Material Extrusion (MEX) processes

· Understand the potential and limitations of Polymer materials and real-life applications

· Develop 3D Design Thinking and Design principles for MEX

· Utilise software to create 3D CAD models

· Prepare files for the print process

· Familiarise with the printing process, post-processing and basic troubleshooting of 3D printers

Requirements: To attend this course, participants need to be aged 18 and above and will need to bring their own internet-enabled device (laptop).

Participants will be required to sign a participant consent form to join the workshop in-person. The deadline for registration is 19th April 2022 at 5pm BST.
