The first Stratasys Authorised Training Center in the UK has opened and is the first Academy of its kind in the EMEA region, operated by Stratasys’ platinum partner Tri-Tech 3D.

A varied number of courses on offer look to train 3D printing operators and designers of different abilities, covering key topics such as, ‘how to design for additive’, among many others, while software training with GrabCAD programmes are also featured within the courses.

The UK leads the way, as further Authorised Training Centres across the country are expected to be announced in the coming months, as well as sites in Scandinavia and Benelux.
Named the Tri-Tech 3D Print Academy, the first UK site offers high-level expertise and training for users of Stratasys FDM and PolyJet 3D printing technologie, plus how users and businesses can optimise the use of additive manufacturing within their product development and manufacturing processes.

“At Tri-Tech 3D, we have been working intimately with Stratasys additive manufacturing for over 10 years and have a deep expertise in its core technologies,” said Tri-Tech group director Adrian Painter.

“We believe in the truly disruptive potential of additive manufacturing, however implementing it within traditional design and production environments without the appropriate training can be challenging.

“This is where we can add real value, supporting users and businesses small or large in becoming more efficient, productive and profitable through the effective use of additive manufacturing,”


Matthias Gukelberger, VP and head of services EMEA, Stratasys, added: “It’s very important to us that we provide users of our technology the local expertise to guide them throughout their additive journey and Tri-Tech is the ideal partner to help us achieve this.

“It has a strong heritage in working closely with its customers to understand their business needs and provides dedicated support to ensure they get the most out of additive manufacturing.”

Gukelberger also announced that more selected training partners across the UK, Scandinavia and Benelux will also be announced as Authorised Training Centres in the coming months.
