America Makes plans to run a course in additive manufacturing (AM), taking place in Youngstown, Ohio, USA, in March.

The Advanced Curriculum in Additive Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Innovation (ACADEMI) course entitled Metals Design for Additive Manufacturing, is open to both members and non-members of the 3D printing institute and will be held from 5-9 March 2018. It will explore advanced design with a focus on new regions of design spaces, engineering, manufacturing, and processing techniques for AM with metallic materials.

Participants in the course should have two years professional experience or production-level experience with AM and traditional manufacturing technologies. It costs US$7,999 per individual with an introductory discounted rate to both members (US$5,600) and non-members (US$6,600) for the first 10 people to register. 

‘We are excited to offer this Metals DfAM course as part of the ACADEMI program, and to make it available to our members and non-members alike,’ said Rob Gorham, America Makes executive director. ‘There is great value in this hands-on, immersive course as participants will become key enablers in growing a stronger AM community of practice within their organizations. Because all ACADEMI courses incorporate research and development processes and techniques emerging directly from America Makes projects that are ready for implementation, the content is cutting-edge and rigorous.’
