This project-based course provides participants or companies who are keen to explore additive manufacturing in a structured learning and practical pathway. They would be able to design and print a prototype by metal printing technology to evaluate it as a viable business or operational model. By going through the formal training, project and mentoring, they will have the necessary skills to work on prototyping the conceived application or part.

Course Objective

The course will equip participants with an understanding of Additive Manufacturing processes, capabilities, limitations, requirements, and they will be able to design and print a replica mechanical part that they have selected through project based learning. Participants will apply the skills to create a prototype via additive manufacturing. This prototype is meant to be a “pathfinder” component that could stimulate further interest within the participant’s company with regards to their adoption of additive manufacturing in Singapore.

Course Outline

By the end of the course, participants will be able to: 

1. Explain Singapore standards related to Additive Manufacturing.
2. Apply the core Additive Manufacturing technical knowledge through fabrication of a prototype by metal printing technology.
