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.

ACCESS-3DP provides a complete Joint Curriculum on 3D Printing

External experts, from the industry and academia, and more than 8 different European countries have validated the Joint Curriculum through a depth questionnaire in a collaborative activity. The very positive results obtained confirm that the Joint Curriculum meets the sectors’ expectations. According to them, there is a general harmony between Modules and Learning Objects.

The 6 learning modules are:

  1. Innovation process applied in the traditional sector – Design and 3DP; 
  2. Design Thinking & Skills;
  3. 3D Printing & Production Process;
  4. Current processes – Different fields of application;
  5. Entrepreneurship and 3D Printing – New business Ideas;
  6. Advanced Industrial Robotics applied in crafts.
