Educating and training a group of engineers


Our additive manufacturing engineers will travel to your organization to instruct each course, which provides an additional benefit to the 3D printer operator training because it’s done on the specific systems they will be using. In addition, the team will not be inconvenienced by travel arrangements. However, if it’s easier for your employees to travel to our technological center, we are happy to host them for the 3D printer machine learning courses.
