Skills Training

Additive Manufacturing Bootcamp


Delivered in a two-day format through Saskatchewan Polytechnic by experienced users of Additive Manufacturing (AM) with strong academic credentials, this introductory course prepares students with the basic theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to better understand and apply practical AM applications. Participants will work through an example, taking a 3D CAD part from a model through optimum build orientation, actual part-build, and final post-processing of the part.

Why Additive Manufacturing Bootcamp?

Upon completing the Additive Manufacturing Boot Camp, participants will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of AM, including comparison to traditional manufacturing processes, and how it had fundamentally changed what can be designed and built;
  • Understand the type of 3D data required to produce a part, and the various ways it can be generated, including CAD models, scanned data, and how to properly process it for a successful build;
  • Gain hands-on experience with desktop AM technologies and understand the complete design-to-part process and understand how most models need finishing after they are built;
  • Understand the wide variety of machines types and materials, and how AM is applied across a wide variety of industries, and;
  • Realize the potential implications of AM technologies on product development.

Who Can Benefit?
