Stratasys sets up European academy program

Stratasys is bringing its Academy program to the European region, starting in the UK, and covering both designing for 3D printing and how to use the printers.

Tri-Tech will be running the first courses in the Stratasys Academy program in the UK.

The first Stratasys Authorised Training Centre in the UK will be run by Tri-Tech 3D, based in Stoke, which is also a Stratasys UK Platinum Partner. Tri-Tech will offer expertise and training for users of Stratasys FDM and PolyJet 3D printing technologies, as well as their associated GrabCAD software. The aim is to help customers get the most out of their investment and to avoid expenses through production errors and material wastage.

Adrian Painter, group director of Tri-Tech 3D, says: “We believe in the truly disruptive potential of additive manufacturing, however implementing it within traditional design and production environments without the appropriate training can be challenging. This is where we can add real value, supporting users and businesses small or large in becoming more efficient, productive and profitable through the effective use of additive manufacturing.”

Matthias Gukelberger, vice president and head of Services EMEA for Stratasys, added: “We will continue to extend this value in the UK, Scandinavia and Benelux via additional Authorized Training Centres in the coming months through selected training partners.”
