This course covers the overview of the field of Additive Manufacturing including the discussion of several technologies that is in the field. The course also provides an extensive experience of using a Fused Deposition Modelling AM machine which is the most common and the most affordable AM machine that could be used for rapid prototyping. The course is focused on the usage and troubleshooting of the FDM machine and would also provide a quick overview of the parts and the principle of operation of the FDM machine. At the end of this course, the participants are expected to be able to operate an FDM machine and would be able to produce their own prints from a computer 3D model into a real object using the FDM machine.

ENTRY COMPETENCIES of Participants (Prerequisites):

There are no entry competencies requirement for this course.


  1. Be knowledgeable about the field of Additive Manufacturing.
  2. Be knowledgeable of the parts and the principle of operation of a Fused Deposition Modelling machine.
  3. Be able to produce a manufacturing file for FDM machines from a 3D computer model using a slicer software.
  4. Be able to operate and to produce a 3D print using an FDM machine.
  5. Be able to know the common problems encountered in operating an FDM machine and to know how to troubleshoot it.
  6. Be able to know the different materials that can be used in an FDM machine and the corresponding proper usage.

*EVALUATION by the CPD PROVIDER: All the participant are required to achieve at least 70% in all evaluation to get a passing grade and complete the course.

PURPOSE of Evaluation by the CPD PROVIDER is to check if the participant achieved the learning outcomes intended. CPD Provider has to ensure confidence in the program that it designed. If the evaluation of the outcomes is not properly done, then the CPD program is considered weak or poor. It is the responsibility of the CPD Provider to ensure that the participant achieved learning outcomes through the use of proper evaluation tools. Self-evaluation by the participant (did you learn from this program) is not sufficient proof of having achieved learning outcomes.

While the CPD Provider needs to evaluate its own program for future planning, this is not the evaluation tool for the learning outcomes intended.
