Learn How To Design For Metal 3D Printing
In-Person Metal 3D Printing Training
We are now offering free, intensive Design for Metal Additive Manufacturing courses at our facilities in Zhongshan, China. The course is run by our 3D printing pro, Chloe Kow, who has over 10 years experience in the industry. Small class size allows each participant to truly get an immersive experience from software preparation to printing parts and adding surface finishes.
During the course, you will learn to understand the different design rules that are applied for metal additive manufacturing allowing you to apply the correct design rules for your next project. But there are even more benefits! Traveling to Zhongshan means you get to meet our awesome team, go on a factory tour, build contacts with like-minded people and eat great food. Plus Hong Kong is just 90 minutes away making Zhongshan a convenient location to visit! Learn more about what to expect during the course in our recent blog.
