Prototyping specialist, Visible Futures Lab, School of Visual Arts
In this course students will be introduced to digital fabrication and common methods of rapid prototyping: 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC milling, UV and vinyl printing. This will be a hands-on exploration of the strengths and shortcomings of computer-aided design. By the end of this course, students will have a fabricated project and an understanding of 3D modeling, file handling for digital fabrication, and techniques for refining craft and finishings. Sessions will be held in the Visible Futures Lab, a state-of-the-art rapid prototyping facility. NOTE: The lab fee includes in-class demo materials, safety equipment, and access to tools and workstations. Use of laser cutters, CNC router, and other digital fabrication machines may incur additional fees. Basic materials will be provided; all other materials must be purchased by the student.
