Overcoming the skills gap

The next generation of designers, engineers, and technicians have yet to graduate college. Overcoming the additive manufacturing skills gap depends on nurturing these talented young minds with access to real-world experience, the development of practical skills, and access to industry-grade technologies. 

Feeding hungry young minds by letting them create something they can touch and feel is crucial to making a lasting impact on their education. By incorporating 3D printing technology into your curriculum, you’re giving students the chance to use their imaginations and create instead of working in concepts and theories. The learning doesn’t stop with graduate students either. By incorporating 3D printers in your research departments you’re improving the accuracy and quality of research by validating designs and testing functional prototypes.
