FUNDAMENTALS OF DIGITALLY FABRICATED FORM
Introduces the design and (computer-controlled) fabrication of three dimensional objects using both additive (3D printing) and subtractive (laser cutter, CNC router / milling machine) processes. Various commercial and open-source software tools for 3D design (CAD), manufacturing (CAM) and visualizing will be explored. Projects throughout semester will increasingly build upon instructed aspects (stimulating iterative approaches) and culminate in a final project intended to convey conceptual grasp of chosen fabrication method.
Participants of all backgrounds are encouraged to register; no previous design or prototyping experience is required.
