Overview

Additive Technology (3D Printing) is transforming the manufacturing world. Large and small machines are finding a home in every step of the manufacturing process–from prototyping and fixtures to complete unit production.
 
The Additive Manufacturing Training Program offered by Cincinnati State’s Workforce Development Center (WDC) develops the knowledge and skills necessary to operate additive equipment, implement it into manufacturing production and gain knowledge of lightweight and other advanced materials.
