SAMANTHA project gets to the heart of matter

The third Transnational Meeting of the project SAMANTHA, held last September and hosted virtually by Centrocot, was focused on the development of training materials for e-learning courses on 3D printing. On 25th September and on 9th October the third Transnational Meeting of SAMANTHA project was held. Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the partners met virtually to discuss and define the next operational steps. In particular, the work in progress of the IO2A3 was presented: during the next months the partnership… Read More »SAMANTHA project gets to the heart of matter

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

SAMANTHA project and the #ErasmusDays

Virtual events have become, in this “new normality”, a priority for all types of companies and all those that must bring together a multitude of people in the same place to achieve the success of their projects. Thus, the Erasmus+ projects are not an exception. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the complete cancellation of all physical mass activities. This causes in many cases the reorganization events which are postponed for future years or adapt to the circumstances and develop… Read More »SAMANTHA project and the #ErasmusDays

Printing progress at TECOS

TECOS fights against COVID-19

Over the last weeks, TECOS was constantly active in additive manufacturing field. Our 3D printer turned as a volunteer and has been employed for several days/weeks to produce special holders that minimize ear pains of the health care stuff, while wearing a hygienic mask. We must state that these holders really don’t have any commercial purpose (free of any charge), rather they can be used by anyone who has pain troubles when wearing for several ours the hygienic mask. It… Read More »TECOS fights against COVID-19

REPAIR3D: Additive Manufacturing and recycled resources for high added value 3D printed products

Repair3D (Recycling and repurposing of plastic waste for advanced 3d printing applications) is an European project, co-funded by Horizion2020, that aims at the development of innovative reclamation and repurposing routes for end -of -life plastic and carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) components. This will be achieved by employing advanced nanotechnology solutions, Additive Manufacturing (AM) and recycled resources, for the production of high added value 3D printed products with advanced functionalities. In this way, the combination of AM, polymer processing and… Read More »REPAIR3D: Additive Manufacturing and recycled resources for high added value 3D printed products

Is it possible to use leftover wood for 3D printing?

This is an interesting question that can be answered with “Yes”. Such 3D printed houses are called Ashen Cabin, which has been realized by the designer studio HANNAH. In these houses, for example, the chimney 3D was printed. The material of concrete is also suitable for the 3D. Sounds unbelievable at first sight, but it is possible. Source: 3dnatives.com Another unusual perspective on additive manufacturing is a current exhibition at MoMA New York by Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group… Read More »Is it possible to use leftover wood for 3D printing?

Discover the general development of the SAMANTHA project

SAMANTHA project, financed by European Commission in the field of the Erasmus + programme, Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education and Training, has the aim of creating Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors. The consortium, guided by KIT, is actively formed by AMUEBLA (Spain), CEIPES (Italy), CENFIM (Spain), CENTROCOT (Italy), ILI-FAU (Germany) and TECOS (Slovenia). The SAMANTHA project wants to anticipate the improvement/update strategy, especially in the field of VET because the current offer of European VET… Read More »Discover the general development of the SAMANTHA project

SAMANTHA project has successfully held its second telematic meeting, despite the COVID-19

On April 22 and 23, AMUEBLA, the cluster of companies in the furniture sector in the Region of Murcia, hosted online the second monitoring meeting of the SAMANTHA project, co-financed by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by KIT. In this meeting, the consortium put an end to the work carried out in the IO1 and presented the results obtained after the surveys carried out with students and VET teachers or professionals coming from the habitat and toolmaking sector.… Read More »SAMANTHA project has successfully held its second telematic meeting, despite the COVID-19

The project enters its second phase

After successfully completing the first phase of the project, Intellectual Output 1, we now move on to the design of the second phase, Intellectual Output 2. In this phase, T-Skills take shape. Horizontal properties are the general characteristics in this area. In our project, these are the modules of Creativity and social innovation, communication skills, Project management techniques and Business model innovation. These modules can also be called soft skills in this area. Depth in this area is vertical. This… Read More »The project enters its second phase
