Slice of Future: Czech out Mysteries of 3D Printing

General description

3D printing is the coolest thing since sliced bread. It's like having a tiny factory in your own home!

Everyone knows about this amazing technology, but what are the secrets behind it? Let's uncover them together. During our course you will learn about principles of additive technologies, how the 3D printers work and mainly how to design and prepare the object for printing.

However, 3D printing is not just about printing your new toys, decorations or new knob for mom's cupboard. The real benefits are in technical engineering. We will show you how additive technologies are changing the process of prototyping and what are the modern trends in automotive, aerospace, or medical applications by visiting university and company laboratories.

You will learn all about 3D printing in the city, which has been voted the most beautiful city in the world. You will explore the city of Awesome Prague, its unique historical atmosphere, and pulsating nightlife. Moreover, you will spend a wonderful weekend trip in the Czech nature. And you won’t be alone in this. All of this not only with us, the organizers from Awesome Prague, but mainly with other 20 participants from all over Europe!

But DO NOT worry, we are preparing much more for you, from city rallies to the most incredible and crazy parties. Our goal is to make the most unforgettable memories for you!

Come and Czech out this 'Addictive' Manufacturing.
