The introductory courses in digital manufacturing equipment focus on introducing participants to the use of core technologies for projects in the laboratory. These courses are repeated periodically throughout the year. Hirikilabs uses them to certify that attendees are capable of using the laboratory equipment. There will be three training workshops: CNC milling, 3D printing and laser cutting.
3D printing consists of manufacturing three-dimensional solid objects by adding material, layer by layer, from a computer-created digital model. The learning session includes managing and programming 3D printers based on open-source hardware.
