Aims, contents and method of the course

Students perform the entire workflow from planning and creating of a 3D model on the computer to the actual printing of the 3D model on a 3D printer. Each group of 3-4 students solve a chemically motivated question using 3D printing technology and flexible time management.

Assessment and permitted materials

Regular meetings to discuss progress and problems. Each group presents in a final meeting its experiences with the 3D printing technology.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

No fear of computers and 3D printers.

Examination topics

Final presentation of the achievements of the working groups.
