AM Application Engineering Metal

Application Specialist


Master EOS systems and software and guide stakeholders to choose high quality part parameters for each and every case.

Additive manufacturing (AM) may look simple but the process chain requires a significant depth of technical knowledge and clear communication between parties to ensure consistent high quality from start to finish.  

An Application Specialist must understand how to operate EOS systems and software The learner must be ready to discuss each case with clients and stakeholders to ensure the success of every aspect of the process chain. 

EOS additive manufacturing courses will give you the training needed to understand and command the nuances of data preparation, part parameters, monitoring and finishing, plus how to communicate this to everyone involved, giving you vital skills to further your career in additive manufacturing. 


This course is split into four phases: 

Phase 1: An introduction to EOS systems and software, learning how to build job preparations with Materialise Magics software. 

Phase 2: Delve into the world of parameter editing, materials and post processing. 

Phase 3: Cover AM quality standards and deepen your knowledge of Additive Works Amyphon. 

Phase 4: Theory examination, practical examination, certification and farewell event.

    What if you could generate high quality builds for your company and clients, becoming an indispensable member of the team and furthering your career in additive manufacturing?  

    Fast-track your progress in one of the most innovative manufacturing disciplines in the world as an Application Specialist with Additive minds Academy comprehensive 3D printing online classes.

    • Understand EOS Metal machines and how to operate them. You will receive instruction on settings and safety procedures specific to the EOS M290 and other popular machine types.
    • Decide the value of 3D printed parts and be able to communicate this clearly to the client. You will feel confident helping clients to find the right AM application by referencing a deep knowledge of cost-per-part, cost distribution, cost leverage potential and industry and machine specifics for each project. 
    • Recognise potential hazards and gain a deep understanding of EOS safety procedures, safety signs and personal protective equipment to ensure a high level of safety on site.
    • Become accustomed with Materialise Magics software and learn how to use it to perform a range of repairs such as holes, remeshing and smoothing. 
    • Explore advance software options like part offset, labelling and hollow parts and learn about auto placement, orientating parts and the special options available for generating high quality supports.
    • Gain a knowledge of different surface types including DownSkin, Standard Contour and UpSkin and evaluate how to label parts on a real test job.
    • Get acquainted with EOSPRINT 2 , our inhouse data preparation software, learning how to work with part parameters like editor structure, beam offset and supports. You will gain an in-depth knowledge of hatches, contours, and edges and practice applying different exposure settings on various application samples to ensure the best outcome. 
    • Familiarise yourself with EOSTATE Exposure OT & MeltPool Monitoring. Learn the ins and outs of AM process monitoring as well as the many benefits of using such a system.
    • Study the attributes of different materials and decide which material is best for which job. It is important to know which materials shrink or warp when processed and by learning about the qualities of our most common material types, you will gain a deeper understanding of the data preparation stage and its importance.
    • Receive training on post-processing surface finishes, including powder removal as well as part and support removal. Understand the importance of each method, their differences, and what makes a high quality part finish.
    • Recognise the definition of quality within the 3D printing industry and how EOS measures and monitors during each stage of the process. You will learn about quality criteria such as dimensional accuracy, tensile strength, hardness, density, and electrical conductivity within the limits of data preparation, machine, powder, process parameters and post processing. You will feel confident ensuring a quality end product in every project.
    • Feel confident operating Amphyon to create technically robust parts. Avoid part distortion and support failure by properly calibrating software to predict and prevent breakages and overheating. This 3D printing module teaches you how to adjust your data preparation to ensure each and every part is a success.
