    3D Printing Slicing Software Course

    Learn 3D design Slicing techniques for
    printing your projects/ products.

About the Course

Amrita TBI Fab Lab introduces a 3D Printing Slicing Software Course. It is designed for students, researchers, faculties, innovators and entrepreneurs to learn about 3D printing technology and specific techniques to convert a 3D design to G-Code file which is a necessary conversion to get your 3D design ready for 3D printing. Getting trained in this software will also give insight about your project or product if it can be 3D printed, if yes how much time, cost and material it would take to complete the manufacturing. This will also help you to plan and manufacture your projects within less time and proper planning to iterate your innovative design with minimum efforts.

The course covers basics of 3D printing technology, trends in additive manufacturing industry, analysis of commercially available 3D printers in India, details of different types of 3D printing materials and their applications, best 3D design libraries and how to access them, insights about good 3D design and a bad 3D design, knowledge sharing on process for achieving a customer centric 3D design approach, how to convert a 3D design into a 3D printable model, step by step guide to use different types of 3D printing slicing software like Ultimaker Cura, Makerbot and Form cure, why and how to use different slicing software tool like infill density, layer height, support angle, support breaker, dissolvable and breakaway materials, dual color settings, 3D printing an image file, how to give thickness to raft and major differences between software for FDM 3D printers and SLA 3D printers and so on. The course will also give a brief introduction of how to use a FDM 3D printer of the latest model of Ultimaker S5. The participants will also get an introductory session on maintaining a 3D printer and what type of error usually a failed 3D printer has and how to solve them. There will be frequent practise sessions, quizzes and assignments to assess your learning progress. The technology is trending as it is beneficial for iterating a 3D design and testing the prototype with less investment and time which brings down the design cycle within days or weeks compared to months. There is no doubt 3D printing technology will enhance the production capability within the reach of designers.
