In Fall 2016, the Berkshire Innovation
Center and Berkshire Community College (BCC) held an event that featured the
College’s newly acquired advanced manufacturing equipment, including a full
color, multi-material 3D printer and a CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine). Over the past months, BCC faculty and Industry representatives have
been trained on all aspects of equipment programming and operation and have developed
curriculum to train at the operator level.
BCC and the BIC are thrilled to announce the following training
opportunities that will be offered late Spring of 2017 at no charge
due to a U.S. Department of Labor Grant.
Solidworks/3D Printing Operator Training
This forty-eight (48) hour workshop is designed for
the entry-level user for both Solidworks and 3D printing technology and will be
a prerequisite for individuals who wish to use the new 3D Printing and CMM
equipment at an operator level. Participants will construct 3D models for
rapid prototyping, and then print their projects. PREREQUISITE: A basic understanding of the Windows platform
is required. A working knowledge of blueprints is helpful
for this course.
Mark Lausier/Bob Mossman COST: No charge.
