when 8 June 2020 - 3 July 2020
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 2300

Hosted in the fully-equipped laboratory of the 3D Lab of the TU Berlin, this four-week course offers an introduction to working with professional 3D printing technologies such as laser sintering with polyamide and powder printing with mineral powder (modified gypsum). This course is aimed at those with an interest in 3D scanning and printing technologies and methods who want to gain insight into the work with professional 3D printing technologies and learn about current applications. As this technology covers numerous application areas, this course will be interesting for participants from diverse scientific disciplines (engineering, design, fine art or art history). The course provides an introduction to manufacturing 3D printed objects with the laser sintering system and the powder printer of the 3D Lab, as well as data generation and data preparation for it. Participants will gain basic knowledge of the use of two professional 3D printing technologies, structured light scanners and related software.
