April 11, 2016 - Albany, GA - Albany Technical College's Drafting Technology Program will hold a 3D Printing Open House on Tuesday, April 12th, from 10am to 6pm, in the Drafting Technology Lab in the Center for Excellence in Information Technology Building.

In order to prepare students for employment in the 3D printing world, Albany Tech has added 3D curriculum to the existing drafting program. This is the first of its kind in the Albany and surrounding area and will be closely aligned with the current drafting and computer-aided designed courses. Graduates of the program will meet the anticipated workforce demand that will be brought about by the 3D revolution in Architecture, Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Telecommunications, Fashion, Business and Medical Industry.

3D printing and rapid prototyping is an emerging field that uses technologies to model and construct physical three-dimensional objects by assembling thin layers of material under computer control. This technology is destined to revolutionize our world as we know it today.
