ACCESS-3DP is a transnational project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

The project aims at taking Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) as a new, disruptive technology under the umbrella of Advanced Manufacturing in order to set out frameworks to train and upskill workers in the craft and creative industries.

It is implemented by 5 different organisations in France, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

CETEM expanding its knowledge of 3D printing to start the development of the ACCESS-3DP course

CETEM has worked intensively during the month of October to expand its know-how on 3D printing in order to start preparing the ACCESS-3DP course in November with the highest quality and knowledge.

During the week of the 18th of October, the Product Engineering department of CETEM travelled to the Netherlands, specifically to Utrecht, for intensive training in the company 3DEVO: DevoTraining. DevoTraining is in-depth, hands-on workshops on desktop filament extrusion. All these trainings will help CETEM’s team to increase its know-how about 3DP and integrate all of them into the ACCESS-3DP course.

But CETEM has not been satisfied with this training alone. It also attended the Yecla Furniture Fair to make contact with craftsmen and traditional furniture companies and to validate the Joint Curriculum at the same time that it is being offered a training course.

They also aimed to attract more target audiences, especially from the education sector, by promoting 3D printing at the Erasmus Days through the creation of an informative video on the potential of 3D printing.
