Be a part of the Skills Revolution

Led by the South African Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services and in partnership with Deviare, Microsoft, Cisco, Leaders in Motion Academy and Global Entrepreneurship Network,

the 4IR Skills Programme provides skills programmes and internships in key 4th Industrial Revolution domains. These areas are covered in more detail below.

3D Printing
The term 3D printing covers a variety of processes in which material is joined or solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object, with material being added together (such as liquid molecules or powder grains being fused together), typically layer by layer. Today, the precision, repeatability and material range have increased to the point that some 3D printing processes are considered viable as an industrial production technology, whereby the term additive manufacturing can be used synonymously with 3D printing. One of the key advantages of 3D printing is the ability to produce very complex shapes or geometries, and a prerequisite for producing any 3D printed part is a digital 3D model or a CAD file.
