Daily challenges for engineers and designers to create more efficient parts are rising. One way to address this topic is to use Additive Manufacturing Technologies. In recent years, this production method has evolved from prototyping to a serial production process. The most important topic of layer-wise technologies is to take into account the entire end-to-end process. In this course, the students gain basic knowledge on this technology and processes. During the week, participants will design and create a device from scratch to take home. Based on practical design and manufacturing lessons in the workshop, all participants get in direct contact with the total process chain.
