Nanyang Poly and Materialise to drive 3D adoption

Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) and Materialise are teaming up to drive 3D printing adoption in Singapore.

Also known as additive manufacturing (AM), 3D printing improves performance and saves weight, and time and cost when compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

To stimulate the adoption of AM, the two organisations have developed the Deep Dive into Professional 3D Printing continuing education and training course for working professionals. Through the course, pProfessionals will be able to delve into design possibilities of 3D printing and explore the various uses and digital processes. They will discover practical and economic insights on how the technology creates business value.

“NYP is excited to co-develop and deliver this course with Materialise, to equip Singaporeans with comprehensive knowledge for the application and potential of 3D printing and AM technologies. This will allow them to leverage growing opportunities and incorporate these technologies into their business, and also enable regional companies to innovate and enhance their operations,” said Desmond Tan, Director of NYP’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC) and Deputy Director of the NYP School of Engineering.

As part of the collaboration, Materialise will also provide AMIC with its Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite software.

“3D printing has developed into a valuable complementary production technology. Because of its design freedom, it enables lightweight design and improved functionality of parts. Its digital nature facilitates flexible manufacturing: on-demand, decentralised, and networked. We are looking forward to working with NYP to guide companies along their 3D printing journey,” said Kelvin Wee, Sales Director of Materialise Malaysia.
