The Project

3D printing is changing the way goods are designed, made and sold. Instead of being mass-produced in a factory and shipped around the globe, goods can now be customised and made-to-order on location for an individual. This will radically transform the way businesses operate and engage consumers.

The goal of this project is to design a product that can be customised and made with 3D printing technology. Throughout this project you'll explore 3D visualisation, rapid prototyping and apply the business model canvas to create something that you could launch to market.

Ideal for people interested in:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Design
  • 3D printing
  • Consumer Products

Create a 3D Printed product
I can see this course leading its way into a 3D printing & entrepreneurial thinking/start-up type of course. Today's employers see it as a bonus skillset to be able to design a prototype for business case studies.
Design and Create a 3D Printed Product
Partnering with 3D Printing Studios gave what we were doing a realistic edge. Working with a Product Designer was great and just knowing that you have people working in the industry guiding you and giving feedback was amazing.
