UL-NAMIC: Fundamentals of AM Certification Course

Preparatory course & Certification Exam

The prep course is a discussion-oriented and interactive session in which participants receive comprehensive introductory knowledge of the 3D printing industry. Covering terms and definitions, software and hardware as well as discussing applications and case studies, you will begin to understand the benefits of 3D printing in a way that is relevant to your business needs. The certification exam is a three hour proctored, open book and open note exam consisting of 100 multiple choice questions.

Upon passing the exam, students earn their Additive Manufacturing Fundamentals Certification. The certification may be stackable, creating a flexible, modular pathway for mastering the principles and processes of AM.

SUTD – Miniwiz Sustainability in AM Design Thinking Workshop

Presented by The International Design Centre at SUTD and Miniwiz, this Workshop will explore the use of Design Thinking methodology and techniques to address the issues of sustainability, recycling and instill eco-consciousness, with primary focus on advanced manufacturing and 3D printing.




NAMIC 7th AM Summit Series – DfAM

We welcome you to join us on the 7 May 2019 at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre to learn and network with over 300 global 3D printing experts, early adopters and innovators, as we discuss the latest in 3D printing design and adoption globally.

The conference key highlights are:-

  • Our next industrial opportunity in additive manufacturing needs DfAM
  • Trending: Generative designs and DfAM methodologies
  • Connecting the dots for on-demand distributed manufacturing

NAMIC Conference

AM Industry Visits

The AM Industry Visit is a 1 day event  specially curated with selected partners to showcase their in house AM facility highlighting the latest  technology offerings, manufacturing solutions,  best practices and industrial applications.

Besides being an educational tour of the AM ecosystem in Singapore, the AM Industry Visit will be an excellent business  opportunity for both local and international delegates to meet and understand the various AM Solution providers.



Altair Design Software Simulation Workshop

Altair is a global technology company that provides software and cloud solutions in the areas of product development, high performance computing and data intelligence.

This workshop will inform the participants on insights into the Simulations software and the unprecedented composite design freedom offered.

Materialise Workshop


Optimize your 3D Printing Process

Materialise software is helping powering 3D printing production around the world. Learn how to optimize your process, plus get hands on Magics training.

Brought to you exclusively by Materialise, the workshop will bring awareness and understanding of design for AM and how it enhances the entire workflow.

TÜV SÜD-NAMIC: Quality and Production Management for AM

The course provides a practical overview of the requirements in setting up an effective QM system specific to AM serial production, and the factors that determine the quality of AM-produced parts. With a functional and practiced QM, the fluctuation in the quality of parts can be reduced, thus, reassuring reproducibility. Topics covered in this course include the typical challenges and solutions in implementing 3D printing technologies as an Additive Manufacturing (AM) solution, the application of quality adjustment and monitoring methods, and the understanding of the factors that determine the AM quality-decisive properties.

The course deliverables are derived from past experiences of the AM production industry to avoid pitfalls, hence, shortening the time to market. This achieves a high degree of quality for your customers and creates the basis for reproducible AM series production.

A certificate will be provided at the end of the course.

Siemens Industrialising AM with End-to-End Process Workshop

Push the boundaries of what’s possible and create lighter, stronger and more efficient products. Using the combination of Generative Design and Additive Manufacturing, join us to learn how to reverse enginner or design products that optimally balanced performance, structural strength and weight in a fraction of the time it would traditionally take.

Start-Up Innovation Forum

The Start-up Innovation Forum is an inaugural platform for global AM start-ups  to present their innovative ideas and pitch  for support and funding.

The selected start-up(s) will receive attractive seed funding as well as expert guidance and mentorship to realise their idea.

The area of innovation will be AM related and could be in addressing solutions for any industrial sector.

Autodesk Workshop

Autodesk Generative Design Workshop

Learn how you can imagine, design, and create a better world.

Through this workshop , you will expand your ability to deliver innovative design and engineering solutions.

Simultaneously generate multiple CAD-ready solutions based on real-world manufacturing constraints and product performance requirements.


Dassault Systemes Design Workshop



An introductory workshop into the powerful tools available with 3DS Solutions that would lead to deeper certification programme to measure your knowledge and competency.

Different products such as Catia and Solidworks will be used to introduce the participants on the vast applications in design and manufacturing for heavy industries as well as in consumer goods and retail businesses.

Audience – Who to Attend

AM is transforming industries and the world we live in – now and the future.
