The Training Course is Taking Shape!

In the last weeks and months, the activities of the partnership have focused on the elaboration of the learning content for the SAMANTHA training course. Highly informative texts were created for the AM-oriented modules as well as for the transversal learning content. In the future training course, those text documents can be used as a downloadable resource for supporting the learning process. But developments will not stop at that level. At the moment we are in the middle of enriching… Read More »The Training Course is Taking Shape!

State of Art IO2

The concept of T-shaped skills based on the insights of IO1 was placed in the centre of our vision as those abilities of the workforce in the Toolmaking and Habitat sectors are strongly needed. The vertical bar on the T represents the depth of related skills and expertise in a single field, whereas the horizontal bar is the ability to collaborate across disciplines with experts in other areas and to apply knowledge in areas of expertise other than one’s own.… Read More »State of Art IO2

Nowadays Plastic waste has become a problem for our planet. We are witnessing seas, forests and cities polluted by this dangerous waste. There are many inventions that use plastic waste to create new objects or even new materials. These studies refer to the world of design and industrial engineering, in which through continuous research, experts in these fields try to give green solutions to pollute our planet less. In the context of addivie manufacturing, it is necessary to highlight the… Read More »Circular Economy and Additive manufacturing

A 3D printed house!

In Germany, the first 3D-printed residential house is currently being built in the North Rhine-Westphalian town of Beckum. Its construction is being funded with €200,000 and its completion is planned for March 2021. The project uses a new type of portal printer, the BOD2, which can be operated by just two people with software assistance. A print head moves on three axes on a permanently installed metal frame and is monitored by a camera. A special nozzle precisely applies a… Read More »A 3D printed house!

SAMANTHA Training Course: T-shaped Skills in Additive Manufacturing

Convince through professional and personal skills! In order to open up the highly innovative field of Additive Manufacturing for one’ s own particular field of application, the acquisition of technical knowledge and skills is of fundamental importance. But in-depths specialist knowledge alone is nowadays no longer considered sufficient to be successful in business. Rather, in addition to the general and in-depths professional “hard skills” it is the so-called “soft skills” that are of particular importance. They have become indispensable, especially… Read More »SAMANTHA Training Course: T-shaped Skills in Additive Manufacturing

The second intellectual output of the SAMANTHA project is SAMANTHA Joint Curriculum and Training Content

The features of SAMANTHA initiative defined and analysed the most suitable training paths, modules and units in order to ease the learning process of the future students  who will have different levels of knowledge and areas of expertise and they will want to choose those subject matters in which they are more interested in. The main goal of the IO2 is to obtain the most suitable curriculum and, therefore, the offline training content considering the real needs of the target… Read More »The second intellectual output of the SAMANTHA project is SAMANTHA Joint Curriculum and Training Content
