New 3-D Printing Technology Course Offered at Penn College

A noncredit 3-D technology course, starting in October and open to the public, will be offered at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The process of 3-D printing – making solid, three-dimensional objects from a digital computer file – will be taught by Craig A. Miller, an instructor of engineering design technology in the college’s School of Industrial, Computing & Engineering Technologies.

The classes will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, from Oct. 13-22, in the Center for Business & Workforce Development on the college’s main campus in Williamsport. The cost is $249.

Participants will explore the implementation of 3-D technology in industry through hands-on activities to familiarize themselves with layering and stereolithography technology. Learn how to download models from the Internet and scan models into computer aided design programs. In addition, students will create a model using SketchUp, a free 3-D modeling software program, and print a 3-D model using MakerBot.

Contact WDCE at 570-327-4775 (under Courses) for a complete course listing, descriptions and dates.
