Additive manufacturing specialist Stratasys has set up its first ‘authorised training centre’ in Stoke, UK, operated by its long-term partner Tri-Tech 3D.
The Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based company offers training and consulting to users and businesses on how to optimise the use of Stratasys solutions and 3D printing in general.
The academy, named the ‘Tri-Tech 3D Print Academy’, offers training for users of FDM and PolyJet 3D printing technologies, Stratasys announced 17 Oct.
The courses on offer are on a variety of topics, including design and working with GrabCAD software programmes, with the aim of maximising the customer’s investment in 3D printing.
“We believe in the truly disruptive potential of additive manufacturing, however implementing it within traditional design and production environments without the appropriate training can be challenging,” explained Adrian Painter, group director, Tri-Tech 3D.
The training, Painter added, can add real value, supporting users and businesses small or large in becoming more efficient, productive and profitable.
Stratasys is also planning to extend the training programme by setting up additional training centres in Scandinavia and Benelux.
