ACCELERATED 3-HOUR TRAINING // ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING FOR PRODUCTION OF PLASTIC PARTS

FATHOM has designed a technology agnostic curriculum on the practical application of additive technologies to achieve greater results—this 3-hour program includes an overview of additive technologies and materials, as well as how to design for additive manufacturing. Training also features a section on the break-even point between additive manufacturing and injection molding for the production of plastic parts.

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

  • Examine the Break-Even Point Between Additive Manufacturing & Injection Molding—Includes Direct Part Replacement & Complex Geometry Examples

  • Explore Topology Optimization & Lattice Structure Design for Additive Manufacturing

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

Additive technologies have enabled new realities in manufacturing such as part consolidation, light weighting, organic geometries, high complexity, faster speeds, mass customization, risk mitigation, higher value problem-solving, lower tooling costs, and even tool-less production.


This training seminar ($250 per person) includes refreshments.

Early registration is highly encouraged—seating is limited.
