Working in the 3D Printing industry

The 3D printing industry is composed of companies with diverse specialties; gone are the days when 3D printing companies only manufactured 3D printers. Today any company willing to dive into this new technology expects to hire employees with initial qualifications. No matter what your background is, you can be sure there's a location for you to learn the skills needed to join this industry.


Why is 3D software so important for 3D printing?

CAD software and 3D modeling software are key elements in the additive manufacturing industry. They are the tools allowing you to create 3D printable parts. These parts are 3D designed and printed, thanks to this software. They are the link of creation between the printers and the 3D printed objects. From a 3D design, you can get a real object, in the real world, with software, 3D printers, and 3D printing materials.
