About the Event

In this jam-packed 5 day course, young aspiring inventors and engineers will learn what 3D printers are, how they operate, the basics of how to use CAD & control the printers, and, most importantly WHY 3D printers are useful and their place in the iterative design process.

Each participant will learn the basics of CAD (Fusion 360) and the software to control what the 3D printer does (CURA). They will also each build and learn how to service their own 3D printer which they will then take home to keep at the end of the week.

My course is not just a normal 3D printing course though, that would be boring… my course is all about using 3D printers to help with my favourite thing in the world… innovation.

Anybody can do a load of tutorials and teach themselves how to run a printer, but WHY? What would be the point of it?

Here’s where my course is different – I am so excited to share with you how I use 3D printing in my real life work as an inventor at one of the leading technology companies in the world, and how you can apply that process to innovate solutions to problems you might come across in your own life, and in the lives of those around you.

I am going to take you through the whole innovation process that I use both in the lab at work with my team, and while I’m working on my own projects at home in my workshop.

We will start right from the beginning with nothing but a with a blank sheet of paper and a problem, all the way through to the end of the week when we will have looked at multiple potential solutions and ended up with a fully functioning prototype, which we will test and evaluate.
