This live, interactive course is designed for professionals from the lighting, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, and related industries to understand the possibilities of 3D printing for lighting and to learn more about each industry’s needs and capabilities.
Additive manufacturing (AM), more commonly known as 3D printing, is poised to revolutionize the lighting industry. Indeed, the revolution has already begun with a few manufacturers now offering 3D-printed lighting fixtures to the commercial market. Recently, the Biden administration has expressed its support for AM to address supply chain disruptions.
It is expected that 3D printing will offer many benefits in the manufacturing of components for lighting systems, including fabrication of cost-effective unique parts that cannot be made using traditional manufacturing methods.
The Lighting Research Center (LRC) has been conducting research and development activities in the application of 3D printing to lighting since 2015. To share this knowledge and experience, the LRC is offering a six-week, interactive, online course on the application of 3D printing to the design, development, and manufacturing of lighting components and products.
