Design for Manufacturing: 3D Printing
Ready to design solutions for the manufacturing industry? Dunwoody’s Design for Manufacturing: 3D Printing Certificate can help launch–or further–your career in additive manufacturing.
Experience 3D Printing at Dunwoody
Looking to get into 3D Printing? Stratasys and Dunwoody College have teamed up to offer the Design for Manufacturing: 3D Printing Certificate. Learn how to use CAD design and 3D printing CAM software; set-up, run, maintain, and calibrate 3D printing machines; and adapt printing techniques to traditional manufacturing processes.
Already in the industry and want to learn more about additive manufacturing? Individual courses may also be taken.
Courses include hands-on training in topics like:
- Engineering Drawings with SolidWorks
- Machine Shop Fundamentals
- 3D Printing Applications
- Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerances
While at Dunwoody, you won’t just print prototype parts and widgets. You’ll design, print, build, and inspect real-world parts in our state-of-the-art labs, which are equipped with three different platforms of 3D printing technology.
Upon completion of the program, you’ll be prepared to take the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam, an industry-standard, sought-after credential for employees who use CAD software.
Additional benefits of Dunwoody’s Design for Manufacturing: 3D Printing program include:
- Access to Stratasys’ Fortus line of 3D printers, each with the ability to print large parts using multiple polymers
- Training on industry-standard software like Solidworks, Insight and Zeiss Calypso, which you can expect to use on the job
- Experience working with multiple facets of 3D printing, including part-prototyping, injection molding, thermo forming, metal casting, and robotics
- Close, personal relationships with Stratsys, including site tours, guest speakers, and direct contact with Stratasys Application Engineers
Graduates earn an industry-recognized certificate. The program takes one year (two semesters) to complete. Individual courses may also be taken for those not interested in the full certificate. Classes within this program are offered during the evening.
Upon completion of an associate’s degree, you will be eligible to enter Dunwoody’s Industrial Engineering Technology bachelor’s completion degree program. Some certificate credits also transfer into Dunwoody’s Mechanical Engineering bachelor’s degree.
