CONCEPT: How to transform the “printed” object into a work of art? From concept development to production this workshop tackles issues around digital fabrication. We create basic designs using the Rhino software merged with digital files created with a 3-D scanner. Our objects are made on Makerbot 3-D printers then transformed through basic silicone mold making and plastic casting applications.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use Rhino Design Software, Scan Studio/Next Engine Scanner, Makerbot 3-D printing, PLA and ABS filaments silicone mold making and an introduction to plastic casting. Students are encouraged to bring laptops with current design software.
ACTIVITIES: We learn through demonstrations, slide talks, creativity discussions and individual help from the instructor.
