Coursera: 3D Printing Specialization

This Specialization will introduce you to the magic of 3D printing. Through a series of four cohesive courses and a hands-on capstone experience, you will acquire the knowledge, skills, and tools to turn your ideas into objects! This specialization has been developed by faculty experts from the Illinois MakerLab (the world's first 3D printing lab in a Business School) along with industry experts from both Autodesk (a leading 3D software firm) and Ultimaker (a leading 3D hardware firm).

You will obtain a rich understanding of what 3D printing is, how 3D printers work, and how this new technology is being used by both individuals and firms to revolutionize our world. In addition, you will acquire a set of tangible skills that will enable you to create digital designs that you can transform into physical objects. These skills can be used to help you launch a career in the growing field of 3D printing, be the 3D printing expert in your current firm, or make the things you need. 

Hurry, it starts on May 8!

Here at UH Mānoa, you can try out the 3D printer in the iLab (Bldg 37). Right now it's free. Check out their website and calendar here! The iLab is also available for teaching courses.
