This virtual platform offers 3D printing training, part printing, materials and technical guidance
Northbrook, Ill., April 20, 2020 — M. Holland Company, a leading distributor of thermoplastic resins, formally launched an online solutions platform dedicated to 3D printing. This online platform was built in response to COVID-19 to allow for remote access to 3D printing education and resources. The Additive Manufacturing Educational Portal allows participants to access training programs, educational courses, certifications, materials, printed parts and technical information. The site can be accessed at M. Holland’s Additive Manufacturing Education Portal.
In an effort to provide more convenient access to training, M. Holland has invested in the development of this online system over the last several months. Although the 3D Printing group will continue to offer in-person training, this e-learning system gives business partners another way to learn new skills and access 3D printing guidance and information across hundreds of processes and dozens of materials.
Members of the Additive Manufacturing Educational Portal can enroll in courses and access other resources based on their needs. The site offers à la carte training options covering a wide range of topics, including essentials for fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS) and photopolymerization (stereolithography [SLA] and digital light processing [DLP]; design for additive manufacturing; operation guidance on 3D printer selection; material properties and more.
