3devo, a Dutch technology company, follows a mission that empowers innovators and creators with accessible, high-quality products. Their revolutionary products include the Filament Maker, a desktop extruder that extrudes custom 3D print materials, and the SHR3D IT, an innovative plastic processor that recycles old plastics into high-quality printing granulate.
After realizing a high-demand for extrusion and material knowledge, they have now launched a series of hands-on training workshops on desktop filament extrusion. Branded as DevoTraining, these workshops are the first of their kind and will be organized at the company’s headquarters in Utrecht. They will train individuals, along with teams, in material experimentation and getting optimal results from 3devo’s desktop filament maker and/or plastic shredder.
The DevoTraining workshops have been developed for manufacturers, innovators, researchers, educators, and other parties associated with the 3D printing or material development industry. Participants have a choice of 3 programs, each tailored to a specific set of requirements:
- DevoNovice, a 4-hour module, covers the basics of desktop filament extrusion using the 3devo Precision or Composer filament maker. This course is ideal for beginners looking for an introduction to their new 3devo machine or the core concepts of filament extrusion.
- DevoProficient, a 1-day long course, provides intermediate-level training in filament extrusion and covers topics such as material mixing, recycling, and machine maintenance. This workshop is geared towards users with some prior experience in filament extrusion, or those interested in producing customized filament by mixing or recycling plastics.
- DevoMaster is a 2-day course designed for extrusion experts looking to further their knowledge or develop filament from innovative new materials. In addition to material mixing, recycling, troubleshooting, and maintenance, this workshop includes advanced material development, extrusion tests with specified materials, and customizable modules that can be tailored to the needs of any industry or application.
“The demand for unique 3d printing materials is ever-growing, which requires new knowledge on how to process it,” said Tim Wesselink, CEO of 3devo. “With DevoTraining, we offer the answers to those innovators who seek to take matters into their own hands. Giving them complete guidance to create and customize their own filament – on demand”
DevoTraining is part of 3devo’s ongoing efforts to make material development accessible and sustainable. Through these unique workshops, the company aims to equip users with comprehensive, practical and up-to-date knowledge of filament making and plastic recycling.
All DevoTraining workshops will be hosted at 3devo’s headquarters in Utrecht, Netherlands. Participants will be guided by a team of engineers, filament extrusion specialists, and material scientists. All in a facility equipped with all the requisite equipment, materials, and resources. The basic, intermediate and advanced level workshops are priced at €499, €899 and €1549 respectively.
The official launch of DevoTraining, along with the release of a detailed overview of each of the workshops, will available on their website on the 12th of February.
