The Additive Minds Academy’s mission is to develop innovative learning formats and impart application-oriented knowledge about industrial 3D printing in the shortest possible time.
The Additive Minds Academy offering includes individual learning modules and comprehensive learning paths that prepare for various roles in additive manufacturing – from machine operator to application specialist to production manager. Customers receive support for onboarding new employees, as well as further training for existing employees. Through blended learning formats, online and remote training, the Additive Minds Academy is taking a step towards conserving resources and thus reducing not only travel times but also training costs.
The learning paths enable steep learning curves. They are designed so that the competence required for a new role in Additive Manufacturing can be built up within only four to six weeks. The courses combine online and self-study with practical learning based on case studies. Participants are supervised throughout the course, receive one-on-one feedback, and can get in touch with other learners. At the end of the program, they take a test to then be certified by the Additive Minds Academy.
The knowledge ranges from basic understanding of the technology to selecting components for AM production, as well as design and AM-appropriate engineering, to scaling and validating production. For each individual role, we develop a corresponding training program.
After the digital transformation from classroom training to blended learning paths and modules, we are now reaching the next stage with augmented and mixed reality. We recently developed an app that helps with the commissioning and maintenance of industrial 3D printers and allows user to to interact with the machine in a context-sensitive manner. In the future, the knowledge database will be searched automatically by machine type and error code, and solutions or learning programs will be displayed.
