TOP REVIEWS FROM THE 3D PRINTING REVOLUTION
This was a great course, great implementation and motivation was provided which has definitely increased my enthusiasm and i am really looking forward to other courses to increase my skills.
This is very interesting course. You take this course for improve your knowledge about 3D printing. And to look at some unique products that has been made by some company.
The course met my expectation as an excellent introduction to additive manufacturing. I enjoyed particularly the videos of company visits illustrating the broad applications of 3d printing.
This first course has been an excellent overview of the field. Easy to follow and brought everything into "perspective" . Eagerly looking forward to the next course.
