Enhancing traditional craft practices though 3D printing and technology innovation

CRAFT3D will focus its efforts in the wood manufacturing sector, with a specific attention to the promotion of the use of 3dprinting in the industry though the development of dedicated VET curriculum in the form of MOOC, integrated by a work-based learning experience and with a tailor-made assessment tool to monitor learners progress in a digital environment. Activities that are going to be implemented are: developing a VET programme aimed at the upskilling of wooden craft artisans and carpenters (25-45) by providing them knowledge and specialized skills on 3dprinting and its applicability in the wood craft sector-developing an assessment tool for VET providers that supports the monitoring of VET learners learning progress in an online environment-Local phase of testing of the MOOC involving wood craft artisans and carpenters-local work-based learning phase and Mentorship Programme testing. The project will result in the creation of CRAFT3D MOOC on 3D-printing for the wood craft sector & Guide, CRAFT3D Assessment Tool, and CRAFT3D Mentorship Programme & Guide.
