This course provides an in‐depth inspection of current methods and processes of digital fabrication such as CNC and 3D printing technology. Students will analyze current practices and incorporate them formulating new design strategies to create original artifacts. This interdisciplinary course focuses on theoretical aspects of materials science, machine tool technology and graphics, while implementing them through digital manufacture process.
During this course experience, students will research, design and create functional and aesthetic physical objects. Students will independently research the existing literature on digital fabrication techniques, and will continually evaluate the students’ ability to validate their design plans, process and execution based on the feedback provided by their peers and faculty instructors.
