After a record breaking year of growth, we want to remind everyone that currently owns or is interested in acquiring a Stratasys printer about Purple Platypus University (PPU). PPU is a service Purple Platypus provides in order to train and educate machine operators with their new 3D printer. Whether you’re new to 3D printing or are experienced in the field, our courses are completely tailored to your needs. With Purple Platypus University you will learn how to utilize your 3D printer to its upmost capability. Shadow-Source is the most advanced and thorough PPU course, offering machine users an interactive and hands-on learning experience.
How Does Shadow-Source Work?
We know that integrating an industrial-grade 3D printer, like a Stratasys printer, into daily workflow can create obstacles. This is why Purple Platypus decided to create Shadow-Source. Shadow-Source is an in-depth educational experience that places one of our expert Application Engineers in your office. Each Shadow-Source course consists of 4-8 sessions in which our engineer will shadow your team for 6-8 hours (throughout the duration of a workday). This allows our engineer the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the day to day of your office and give personalized insight into your printer.
Throughout each Shadow-Source session, our engineer will teach advanced techniques and how to apply those techniques in real-world scenarios. This includes in-depth knowledge about the printer, how to accelerate build speeds, and how to maintain the printer in order to achieve the best results.
What Is The Benefit Of Shadow-Source?
Shadow-Source course gives machine operators the opportunity to learn in-house about the printer they will be using every day. This makes sure no information will be forgotten between instruction and real-life application. In our training, no tips or tricks will be lost in translation.
Another huge benefit of learning directly from an industry expert is our engineers use the exact same printers and software daily. Our Application Engineers spend their whole day fully immersed in PolyJet and FDM technology, and have learned the ins and outs through experience. Participants in Shadow-Source will not need to waste time trying to determine the best practices, our experts can simply teach the shortcuts learned after years of hands-on experience.
Every Shadow-Source participant we’ve had the pleasure of working with has raved about the positive impact the course has had on their team’s production.
