SOLIDWORKS Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing Essentials Course

Article by Rod Mackay updated October 7, 2015


As you would have discovered during our recent SOLIDWORKS 2016 Launch Event Broadcast 3D printing your CAD models with SOLIDWORKS is now much easier with new Print3D tools for previewing and evaluating print jobs. But to help customers gain a better understanding of the latest additive manufacturing (3D printing) technology and how to reduce their 3D printing time and costs we have recently created a brand new SOLIDWORKS Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Essentials one-day training course.

SOLIDWORKS Additive Manufacturing

SOLIDWORKS 2016 Print3D Preview & Evaluation

Using real-life case studies, hands-on sessions and other interactive teaching methodologies, our one day training course ultimately ensures maximum efficiency in getting to know one of the most innovative technologies available today. Designers, Engineers, and R&D Managers can all benefit from this course, whether your company has a 3D printer or not.
