Participants undergo an in-depth curriculum in 3D Printing, Digital Visualisation as well as Architectural and Product Model Making. They focus on exploring the future of these technologies. Each course has timetabled lectures, tutorials, practical sessions, industry placements and personal learning time.
The 3D Print module covers all mainstream print technologies. Participants explore how the industry is constantly adapting and growing. In addition, they learn about innovations that are changing how 3D print is used. Participants learn about the typical workflow of 3D print projects; from modelling and slicing to printing and finishing. Some of the topics this section covers are materials, resolutions, finishing methods, geometric primitives, mould making and designing for 3D print.
Similarly to our 3D Printing curriculum, the Digital Visualisation module gives participants insight into how technologies are rapidly advancing. They study new technologies such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. In addition, our participants develop skills in Data Preparation, Environment building, Textures and Lighting, and setting up an interactive 360° Environment.
Architectural and Product Model Making/Prototyping
During our Model Making module, participants learn the history of traditional Model Making as well as modern Model Making techniques. The programme is both theoretical and practical, ensuring all candidates are inducted into using all tools and machinery safely. The students learn various methods such as constructing 3D objects from laser-cut parts and CNC milling. As a result, participants learn how Model Making is used within a digital workflow and how these skills can be adapted for the 3D printing industry.
