About 3D Printing & Autodesk 123D Series

3D printing technology, is the process of designing Computer-aided Design 3D model, and add plastic material layer by layer with a 3D printer to produce solid products. 3D printing technology has an advantage on manufacture-on-demand, by-products waste reduction, precise object clone, portable manufacturing and etc. From these advantages, 50% of production cost, 70% production lead time can be benefited from integrated and complex manufacturing. Will you become a part of the industrial revolution that the technology brings?

Our course is not limited to the operation of a 3D printer, but more importantly, the whole process of preparing, designing and manufacturing the whole 3D printing procedure, which allows students to solve real-life problems with design and 3D printing. This course uses Autodesk 123D series for the design and production of 3D printing software, which is free and easy to use, and is very popular in the 3D printing industry. In which, you can learn a complete set of production and printing skill.

In addition, many teachers intends to open up 3D printing classes in school. We welcome teachers to learn the practical skill from us and bring it to their students, which let them understand the concept of problem-solving with 3D printing in a scientific way, rather than just having fun with printing out free resources on the web. The course is practically interesting, which is suitable to people who want to have a better understanding on 3D printing. 3D printers will be used on every lesson for practice, and 123D series will be the design software.

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing (also called additive manufacturing) is any of various processes used to make a three-dimensional object. In 3D printing, additive processes are used, in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry, and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source.
