Additive Manufacturing Technician- 3D Printing

The Directorate General of Training (DGT) under Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship offers a range of vocational training courses catering to the need of different sectors of the economy / labor market. During the one-year duration of Additive manufacturing Technician (3D Printing)trade a candidate is trained on professional Skill, professional Knowledge, Workshop Calculation & Science and Employability Skill related to job role. In addition to this a candidate is entrusted to undertake project work and extracurricular activities to build up confidence. The broad components covered in one year duration are as below: 
The trainee learns about safety and environment, use of fire extinguishers, artificial respiratory resuscitation to begin with. They get the idea of basic computer operation to generate 3D model. This includes construction of geometrical figures using drawing instruments, procedure to prepare a drawing sheet as per SP-46:2003. After becoming familiar with basic drafting terminology, students begin to develop multi-view drawings and learning about projection methods, auxiliary views and section views. Lettering, tolerance, metric construction, technical sketching and orthographic projection, isometric drawing, oblique and perspective projection are also covered. Generate detailed and assembly views with dimensions, annotations, in 3D Modeling software, print preview to plot in .dwg and .pdf format. In Manufacturing Technology includes making job as per specification with power tool operation, different complex assembling and fitting, fastening, lapping, making gauges and check for functionality. In electrical & electronics part trainees identify the basic functioning of electrical and electronics equipment used in industrial applications. In addition to maintenance work of 3D printing machine they perform to check the desired accuracy of the components.
