Topic:

3D Scanning and Printing

Target group

Students with an interest in 3D printing, 3D scanning and who want to gain insight into work with professional 3D printing technologies. As this technology covers numerous application areas, this course could be interesting for students from scientific disciplines, engineering, design, fine art or art history.

Short Description

Hosted in the fully-equipped laboratory of the 3D Lab of the TU Berlin, this four-week course offers introduction to working with professional 3D printing technologies such as laser sintering with polyamide and powder printing with mineral powder (modified gypsum).

The course provides an introduction to manufacturing 3D printed objects with the laser sintering system and the powder printer of the 3D Lab, as well as data generation and data preparation for it. Participants will gain basic knowledge of the use of two professional 3D printing technologies, structured light scanners and related software.

The course starts with an introduction to the technologies used at the 3D Lab and selected projects from its portfolio, to give participants an impression of the various possible uses of 3D technologies. Ongoing course lectures will be accompanied by detailed practical units focusing on the use of the machines and the preparation of printable objects. Specifically, the practical training will develop student’s skills in the use of structured light scanners, 3D printing technologies, and in meeting the geometrical requirements for successful 3D prints.

As 3D printing and 3D scanning cover numerous application areas, this course is interesting for participants from several disciplines including science, engineering, design, fine art or art history. The course provides a good starting point for students who are interested in further applications of these technologies.

Prerequisites

The general prerequisites of the TU Berlin Summer University are as follows: at least one year of university experience + English level B2 or equivalent.

A specific requirement of the course is an, at least, basic knowledge of CAD software. It is recommended that students use their own laptops for processing their own 3D files.

Lecturer(s)

- Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schwandt

- Meisterschüler Joachim Weinhold

Syllabus

You can find the syllabus for this course HERE.

We intend to adjust the syllabus accodingly to the preconditions and progress of the participants. Therefore slight changes in the syllabus of the course might occur during the course.

You may find the syllabus useful when discussing with your home University whether the ECTS credits attainable for this course are accepted by them.

Course components

The course starts with an introduction to the technologies used at the 3D Lab and selected projects from its portfolio, to give participants an impression of the various possible uses of 3D technologies. Ongoing course lectures will be accompanied by detailed practical units focusing on the use of the machines and the preparation of printable objects. Specifically, the practical training will develop student’s skills in the use of structured light scanners, 3D printing technologies, and in meeting the geometrical requirements for successful 3D prints. Please notice: we will focus on Selective Laser Sintering with Polyamide 12 and Binder Jetting (inkjet-based 3D printing) with specified Gypsum powder.
