Markforged has introduced Additive Manufacturing University to facilitate adoption of the technology among manufacturers. A knowledge gap remains between additive design and operations, and this does not enable manufacturers to be fully efficient in their production.
The availability of affordable 3D printers capable of printing parts strong enough for the factory floor is already transforming the face of manufacturing, yet some organizations struggle to efficiently and effectively adopt. Each company has its own set of unique needs, but after working successfully with manufacturers all over the world, Markforged built this program to help large companies develop the skills necessary to: identify new applications to use 3D printing; effectively design for additive manufacturing (DfAM); manage the printing process end-to-end; and build business cases for replacing the often costly and time-consuming legacy manufacturing processes.
Participants can benefit from those business classes onsite at Markforged (single or multi-day workshops delivered at Markforged headquarters in Boston, with a selection of courses offered throughout the calendar year taught by industry experts); on-premises (Markforged certification and training delivered at a customer’s facility, with custom-tailored content intended that can accommodate larger teams) as well as learning library (the access is free, on-demand resource to build foundational knowledge of the 3D printing industry and provide best practices for 3D printing applications, including design guides.)
“Markforged Additive Manufacturing University is really about inspiring industry-wide innovation,” said Andrew de Geofroy, Markforged VP of application engineering. “Once we’ve helped engineers, designers, and the manufacturing industry build a strong foundation of additive manufacturing skills, the potential is nearly limitless.”
