Entry Requirements

Learners should have a basic working knowledge of computers and ideally 3D modelling experience. No prior knowledge of 3D printing is required.

Occupational Profile

This course is designed to allow students to learn how to model parts for additive manufacture.

Training and Development Summary

Learners will cover the principles and practical methods used in additive manufacturing (AM) and develop a component using additive processes.

In this course you will cover the following topics:

  • Sketching and constraining geometry
  • Production of 3D parametric features – extruded, cut, lofted and revolved features
  • Creation of hole features
  • Creation of mirrored and patterned features
  • Manipulation and modification of sketches and features
  • Production of printed 3D components
  • Design factors for Additive manufacture
Professional Recognition and Career Progression

Learners can use this to support progression in the workplace and provide progression into more senior/complex job roles. Learners can use this as supporting evidence if they want to progress to a Level 4 qualification and can also be used to gain additional credits to support progression onto degree pathways.

Learners can also progress to the CAD/CAM introductory course.
