Learn how additive manufacturing and 3D printing could benefit your organisation
This short course will develop your understanding of the cost structure and benefits of additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printers, as well as the competitive business advantages additive manufacturing can provide.
Discover the business benefits of metal additive manufacturing
When additive manufacturing is used in sync with other technologies within the process chain, the time and cost of product development can be significantly lessened.
In this course, you’ll learn how additive manufacturing parts are lighter by default, can be tailored for extraordinary performance and aesthetic appeal, and can be manufactured locally and on-demand.

You’ll explore how this impacts the cost structure of AM and how companies using AM also benefit from savings in storage space and added value from fast delivery times of their products.
Explore owning vs. subcontracting metal additive 3D printers
As you get to grips with the direct and indirect costs of additive manufacturing, you’ll consider the business costs of 3D printing and the benefits of owning a metal additive manufacturing printer in production compared to subcontracting one.
You’ll also learn how cost structure and supply chain in additive manufacturing differs from conventional production.
Understand the opportunities of digital manufacturing technology
Alongside experts at LUT University and EIT RawMaterials, you’ll develop your understanding of the economic feasibility and potential of additive manufacturing in business today.
By the end of the course, you’ll be well-versed in how additive manufacturing could benefit your company and the business implications of owning metal additive 3D printers.
