America Makes Opens Enrollment for Metals Course

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Enrollment for America Makes’ first public Advanced Curriculum in Additive Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Innovation, or ACADEMI, course, is now open.

The course, “Metals Design for Additive Manufacturing,” or Metals DfAM, is open to America Makes’ members and non-members. The course will be held March 5-9 at the America Makes Innovation Factory downtown.

This course is a five-day, hands-on, intensive boot-camp training workshop valued at $7,999 per individual, but for this introductory public course America Makes is offering a discounted rate to its members at $5,600 and non-members at $6,600. Space is limited to the first 10 people to register. Those interested can register here.

ACADEMI is a partnership between America Makes, The Lanterman Group, and other America Makes members to accelerate the transfer of additive manufacturing technologies to industry.

“We are excited to offer this course as part of the ACADEMI program, and to make it available to our members and non-members alike,” said Rob Gorham, America Makes Executive Director. “It’s just one of the many ways America Makes is delivering on our mission to be a convener, coordinator, and catalyzer of people, knowledge, and projects within the AM industry.”

Industry and technical specialists from the America Makes membership community such as The Lanterman Group, Penn State University, Youngstown State University, Autodesk, and 3D Systems, will conduct the course.

Participants should have two years professional experience or production-level experience with AM and traditional manufacturing technologies. Those participants with existing skills in computer-aided design, structural analysis, and basic AM knowledge will benefit the most from the intensive training experience.
