Produced by lead technologists in the field, the course Introduction to Computer Aided Design and 3D Printing is created to give the trainee a transferable professional technical skill. At its core, it combines and explores numerous topics in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing. The course is a smart combination of Cloud-based capabilities. Those include the use of Onshape™ (CAD) and Printr™ (3D Printing) cloud software tools, online video training, self-assessments and independent work. For more details about the course, please refer to your Course Content document.
George oversees your CAD training. Before this he was in the engineering support for various major aircraft carriers able to pinpoint the right nut and bolt for most flying machines including the ones you have flown in. His academic background lies in the field of aerospace engineering, with an acute interest in computer-aided engineering. He is a keen promoter of aerospace careers to young people and away from the noise of engines, you will find him enthusiastically concentrating on his Fender guitar.
Achilleas, a visionary scientist and curious engineer, is the author of your 3D printing knowledge. Previously he has worked at various universities’ and national labs as a researcher in the fields of materials nanotechnology. His research expanded into numerous topics including spacecraft engineering, materials development and advanced manufacturing. If you do not want to talk to him about technology and educations, you can discuss his interest of photography and cuisine.
"The whole course far exceeded
my expectations, really good course and incredibly good for an online one,
which I think is always harder to do."
- William, Engineering Apprentice, National Physical Laboratory
"I think this course has been great for helping me to clearly understand the principles of CAD and 3D printing and knowing about its origins"
- Austin, Engineering Apprentice, National Physical Laboratory
"For a professional engineer and inventor, I did find this course a great introduction to 3D Printing tools. My experience with Onshape was a great eye opener in what Cloud CAD can achieve. Keenly awaiting for the next instalment of the course!"
