Know How Transfer Prototyping
Maker's Factory Workshops

In our introductory program, we want to give you a solid grounding in the many possibilities within the Maker’s Factory. We want to work together in a hands-on format in four learning areas on the knowledge you need to realise your own project on this site.

3D data generation
3D printing
CNC milling
2D cutting and engraving

If you have never had any experience in these areas, this is the right course for you – but there will be eye-opening content for more experienced users as well. After completing the course, you will be able to operate the equipment you need independently – but don’t worry, we will still be here to answer any questions!

Note: The courses are not a prerequisite for working on your own. If you’re familiar with the kind of equipment you need to use just let us know, and you can get started after a brief introduction to the machine in question.

Learning field 1: 3d data generation

modul a: 3d scanning

Hand-held and stationary 3D scanning of objects

In this course you will learn to master 3D scanning with structured light. The scanned data is then post-processed and exported for use in CAD software or for 3D printing.

Entrepreneurship For Students Know How Transfer
about the program

The aim of this program is to open up new career and development perspectives for highly qualified scientists who want to become entrepreneurs before or soon after completing their doctorate. Applying both design thinking and interdisciplinary teamwork, participants are encouraged to discover their existing skills as well as their potential. What’s more, personal contact with start-up founders and intrapreneurs from innovation-oriented companies facilitates an up-close exploration of the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship.

In the process, entrepreneurial thinking does not begin with the business plan. Rather, the beginning is embedded in play: “How much start-up can you find in your dissertation?”
