The course covers the basics of AM, get a brief overview of the different levels of AM, learn about the types of materials you can print with, learn why you or your business would want to use AM over traditional manufacturing methods, and get a tour America Makes and YBI’s AM facility.

This entry-level class is perfect for anyone who has a general interest in AM, first or second year engineering students, people with knowledge of traditional manufacturing, and anyone who wants to know the future of manufacturing with the incorporation of AM.
