Ireland's Only dedicated centre for 3d printing and Training
An Initiative of SEAM Research Centre
Additive Manufacturing Training and Education
3DWIT offers Additive Manufacturing training programs suitable for all industry audiences, from absolute beginners all the way to experienced engineers, designers, production technicians and business professionals.
3DWIT is unique, in that it’s the only Centre in Ireland which provides hands-on training in the field of Additive Manufacturing. We offer a wide range of courses, so whether you’re new to 3D Printing or looking for a partner to up-skill your entire workforce, we’ll be glad to share our experience. Training is carried out in our state-of-the-art 3D Print Lab, based at our new facility on the WIT Campus.
Health and Safety
Health and Safety is arguably the most important first step on your journey into 3D Print. We believe every user should have a clear understanding of the Materials and Processes used, as well as the management of PPE, materials handling including safe disposal of waste. This session also gives an insight into other common 3D Print technologies, which provides a useful guide for future reference.
Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM)
Learn how to develop, implement and optimise designs to make the most from your investment. We cover a wide range of DfAM guidelines and provide guidance for your next AM project. We also look at the common causes of build failure and how you can navigate your design through this potentially complex landscape.
Process and Materials
Learn how to select materials and processes that meet your business and the needs of your parts or projects. Learn how to evaluate existing designs for workflow and design parts that leverage the strengths of AM. We look at the strength and weaknesses of different materials (and the process that uses them).
Testing and Standards
Once you have your parts or have developed your application, you’ll need to know how to test your process. We cover everything from tensile testing, surface analysis, sample prep and microscope through to powder flow and morphology. We also cover why you should develop your own materials spec’s, for use with your suppliers and internal inspection procedures.
Need Customised Training?
Training courses can be tailored to meet the requirement of your engineers, systems, materials, end use process and procedures.
