Additive Marvels: 3D Print the Multiverse

General description

Welcome to Additive Marvels: 3D Print the Multiverse, where we dive into the captivating realm of additive manufacturing and its limitless potential to shape the multiverse. In this course, participants will embark on an amazing journey through the fascinating world of 3D printing, exploring its applications across various industries and unlocking the secrets to unleashing creative marvels.

From building an "Iron man" suit to creating your own personalised action figures, participants will learn how to harness the power of additive manufacturing technologies to bring their imaginations to life. Through hands-on tutorials, interesting lectures, and collaborative projects, students will gain practical skills in designing, prototyping, and producing innovative marvels using 3D printing techniques.

We’ve organised an exciting BEST Course in Autumn at BEST Erlangen, offering you an in-depth exploration of additive manufacturing. Whether you see 3D printing as a potential career or simply as a hobby, Erlangen awaits you with its Franconian beers, Nürnberger bratwurst, and rich German culture. BEST Erlangen is renowned for its warm hospitality and flavorful (Spicy) Indian cuisine.

Erlangen hosts one of Germany’s oldest beer festivals and boasts the world’s highest density of breweries. With stunning lakes and amazing hills, it’s the ideal setting for learning. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover Bavaria, home to the famed Oktoberfest.

Join us and embark on a journey to unleash your creativity, expand your skills, and become a master of additive marvels. The future of manufacturing awaits – let’s 3D print the multiverse together!
