Abstract: Complexity for free? This is one of the big advantages of additive manufacturing. But what does that mean in reality? In the case of additive manufacturing freedom in general is also a new restriction. For this reason, it needs appropriate education and further training to recognize the new possibilities and also the limits of the additive manufacturing. At the Centre for Product and Process Development (ZPP) of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences ZHAW, the additive production has been part of the training program for several years both in the teaching of mechanical engineering for students and in the continuing education of professionals. In this paper, the experiences with the new education and training modules "Additive Manufacturing" will be presented. The program includes theory and practice on the machines (AM Laboratory) including the economic and ecological aspects. In particular, a special semester-accompanying project work is carried out, in which the students learn the constructive and technological peculiarities of the product development up to the additive manufacturing process, after-treatment and quality control of the components. The education in bachelor degree relies on the problem-based learning concept, where the student learns about additive manufacturing through the experience of solving an open-ended problem.
