Design for Additive Manufacturing Training

Our experts have designed a technology agnostic curriculum on the practical application of additive technologies to achieve greater results throughout the entire product development process and into production. This established additive manufacturing training program helps companies push the limits of manufacturing to drive industry-leading innovation.

  • Learn How to Effectively Approach Design & Manufacturing from an Additive Technology Perspective

  • Examine Freedom of Complexity to Increase Product Possibility by Way of Physics-Based Design

  • Review a Wide Range of Materials, Matured Technologies, & Industry-Specific Application Development

These dynamic sessions focus on new realities in manufacturing such as part consolidation, lightweighting, organic geometries, high complexity, faster speeds, mass customization, risk mitigation, higher value problem-solving, lower tooling costs and even tool-less production.

Let Go of Traditional Constraints With a New Mindset That Explores Additive Technologies for Production

The curriculum is based on Fathom’s technology agnostic approach to solving today’s toughest product development and additive manufacturing challenges—encouraging teams of designers and engineers to focus on how a product should function, rather than how it will be made which can limit desired functionality. By taking this approach, companies realize better products with the greatest functionality for the end-user.

Full-day events are made up of six sessions (registration is open to the public) and Fathom will continue to offer private courses + consultation services. Our experts can further develop your understanding of how to blend additive technologies with traditional manufacturing during concept development and beyond prototyping into manufacturing—talk with a Fathom specialist today to schedule this technical training experience.

Led by Fathom’s applications engineering team, either option serves a company’s need for total design freedom and faster speeds in their product development and manufacturing processes—attendees can develop a new mindset that lets go of traditional manufacturing constraints. Full-day training events are held at Fathom locations throughout the year and you can sign up at any time while seating is available—ticket price includes six sessions, plus refreshments, lunch, morning/afternoon breaks, demonstrations and additive manufacturing facility tour. See available dates below and click thru to register. Private training events are available as a half-, one- or two-day event and can be hosted at Fathom or your preferred location—curriculum can be tailored to incorporate specific interests and pricing varies depending on group size, location, and/or customization. Talk to an account manager to learn more about pricing, availability and additional program details.
