Join the Materialise Metal 3D printing masterclass

Shorten your metal 3D printing learning curve

From 21-24 March, Flam3D member Materialise is organising a training course in metal 3D printing. The masterclasses will be hosted online in 4 live sessions (9:00 – 12:00 CET) and will be conducted in English. Participants will have 3 weeks to complete the training, get their questions answered by Materialise experts and acquire certification. Who can attend? The workshop is good for professional users of metal 3D printing looking to gain theoretical and practical knowledge into the different aspects and challenges of metal AM, with a specific focus on laser melting technology. The training is suggested for users with zero to two years of experience. More info about what to expect can be found below.

At the Materialise Metal 3D printing masterclass you will learn the best practices for implementing Metal AM into your facility and gain deep insights to optimize your processes and use of tools. The goal of the training is to shorten the learning curve for Metal AM proficiency from at least three months to two days. In addition participants can gain the knowledge to improve printing processes, understand errors and how to repair them.
