This course provides an overview and understanding of the 3-D printing industry, where it came from, where it's going, and where someone could start if they're interested in pursuing opportunities.
A must attend course for those who like innovation and engineering. Will become a must complete subject for engineering graduates. This technology will definitely be a part of our day to day life.

The introductory course nr 1 was fine. Was a good way to start learning about 3D printing, with the indication of some interesitng resourses to know more if the student so wants. However, some of the material I would already revise. For example, in week two there is an interview with the CEO at Normal that produces earbuds, and after checking out this company on the web I got the impression that this company was not active any more. Possibly new companies have in the mantime formed, doing more interesting things. On the other hand, the course does not speak enough about bioprinting. With bioprining I mean not only food rpinting but alos organ printing. This is currently not developed enough to reach the consumer but is a reality which is around the corner and should be spoken more.

I think this would have been better as a documentary than a course, because there was a lot of introducing of different maker spaces and different people, which is not bad, but there was also not a lot of teaching, which is generally what most people are looking for. I got this course for free, but I can't imagine ever paying for this.

Good course, but not what I was expecting. Perhaps the rest of the specialization will give me more of what I was expecting.

Good overview of 3D printing, but does not go into the specifics and does not get technical.
By Himanshu P•
It's more for beginners of 3d printer learners .but real-life application is good to watch
By Neftali W•
Good information but way too short for what Coursera charges.

Looking for more technical aspect, but great course anyways

Educational, but lacks substance and a bit repetitive
By MR. R G•
good course but try to add some technical content .

the course wasn't as professional as I expected!

Needs updating, otherwise ok, easy to follow

good introduction to 3D printing
Not according what I expected

Assignments are interesting and you fell the enthusiasm of the team. However, whole course is interviews only, no slides, nothing in writing (I am quite a visual type of learner, therefore bad for me). Each of probably more than 30-40 videos has the same title strip and the same trailer at the end, together more than a minute so that you waste around 40 minutes of your time seeing the same (marketing material for their university and lab). Furthermore technology does not work well. videos repeat and repeat unless you go back to course overview and select the next one.
Some of the quizzes show up before the videos, so that I was wondering why i could only guess to answer some of the questions, later realizing that answers were given in the following videos.
Some of the quiz questions really strange and not fully covered in videos (and see above, no slide or anything you could use to resume what you should have learned)
TO SUMMARIZE - REALLY EXCITING CONTENT BUT COURSE NEEDS SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT

I didn't really care about the stories from the students or seeing the space for one whole lecture video. It's clear that Ultimaker is the sponsor, but it felt like a commercial. I want to learn more.

Good over view of technology, good list of references and resources to explore more on your own. Didn't really need to be 2 "weeks" worth. Audit for the info.

Great for someone who knows nothing about 3d printing, but overly simplistic if you have any concept of whats going on in that space.

This course is only for business majors - unless you've never heard of 3D printing you won't find anything new here.
By Patrick S•
More of a promotional course than a learning course. You could learn most of the content here by finding a good news article. Videos are short and slow, if you took out the intro to each video and play them at 1.25 speed(as to not fall asleep). You can complete this course in 2 hours and get great scores on the quizzes.

This course doesn't contain any new information. It does not teach you but just excitedly shows commonly known facts.
There are better ways to invest your time.

Several glitches in Thingiverse. The interface the faculty shows is outdated. And there's no response from the support staff or the faculty.

This course is hopelessly out of date and either needs to be retired or rewritten to reflect current technologies.
