Why your next career should be 3d printing
3D Printing is the fastest growing manufacturing sector on the planet and will change how things are made.
3D printing (or Additive Manufacturing) is currently the fastest growing manufacturing sector on the planet and is the future of manufacturing.
Importance of 3D Printing
3D Printing has been identified as a major UK skills gap and the UK government have invested millions into funding Rapid Upskilling courses to address these key digital manufacturing skills gaps
Introduction to 3D 360 and Why choose us for training
3D 360 was born out of industry and because of our extensive knowledge of design and digital manufacturing, 3D 360 were approached to advise the UK government on how to quickly address the major skills shortages in digital manufacturing and how the UK can provide trained employees to support industry 4.0
HIGH VALUE MANUFACTURING CATAPULT (HVMC)
3D 360 worked with the HMVC to deliver the UK`s first Emerging Skills Project training courses in Additive Manufacturing. 3D 360 delivered the entire AM UK pilot scheme and half of the Electric Vehicle programme. 3D 360 is currently the only UK training provider delivering the ESP short rapidly upskilling courses in AM.

DIGITAL CAREERS UPSKILL PROGRAMME (DCUP)
2021 – DCUP scheme was rolled out in Manchester to up skill the GMCA
workforce in digital skills.
3D 360 were privileged in being selected to deliver fully funded 3D
printing and 3D CAD training to the workforce of Greater Manchester.
Our “Seems too good to be true” Full funded course in 3D Printing and 3D CAD offers the following
• 2,3 or 5 days of face to face, fully funded training
• Free Creality Ender 3, 3D printer for every learner
• Plus, free Lunch too.
Learners pay nothing for training, 3D printer or sandwiches!
DIGITAL CAREERS UPSKILL PROGRAMME (DCUP)
3D 360 is also the only training provider delivering fully funded 3D printing and 3D CAD training courses to the workforce of Greater Manchester and since starting in November 2021 have trained over 200 people.
Over 65 of these being teachers and each teacher got a printer to take back to school to educate the next generation in digital manufacturing and 3D printing
DCUP is funded by the European Social Fund, this initiative is open to any employees working or living within the GMCA region.
The Wigan sensory team who provides care for blind people of Wigan took advantage of the training and sent 10 of their team on the course The team now use 3D printers to print Brail tablets, Brail dice and other training objects.
SKILLS BOOTCAMPS ARE COMING SOON!
3D 360 currently have 4 industry supported skills bootcamp bids awaiting final stage conformation with the GMCA and a further 2 with Cumbria.
The Bootcamps are a 60-hour, 10-week training programme. The courses are subsidised dependent on situation Unemployed or self-employed receive fully funded training,
SME`s under 250 employees – 90% funded
OEM`s over 250 employees – 70% Funded
RETAIL AND TECHNICAL
3D 360 also sell, repair and upgrade 3D printers. Implementation of 3D printing into production and printer cell and farms specialists.
HOW ARE THE US MILITARY USING 3D PRINTING
3D printing pods housed inside a standard shipping container for easy transportation are designed o be deployed in combat zones and disaster relief areas.
3D PRINTED SUBMARINE
In July of 2020 the US military revealed their first 3D printed submarine hull. It was made in four weeks as opposed to the 5 months it would take to build one otherwise, and cut production costs by 90%.
US MARINES TRAIN IN BASIC COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN AND 3D PRINTING
The US Marine Corps is training Marines to use 3D printing, equipping them with the skills to quickly fix equipment malfunctions on the battlefield and allowing them to produce custom parts on-demand.
3D 360 have the ability and technical knowledge to educate current military personnel or service leavers on the benefits on 3D printing and digital manufacturing. 3D 360 also offer engineering design services and training on how to design components for 3D printing.
