Digital to Physical: sculptural forms on the CNC
This workshop bridges the handmade with the computer-made art form. Participants start with found objects or forms hand-sculpted in clay, foam or wood that are digitally scanned, modified and perfected. Models are then digitally fabricated via the CNC router, sliced and finally physically assembled into a stack-laminated wood sculpture. Students gain experience with design software, digital fabrication tools, lamination assembly, parts registration and simple carving methods, coming away with a unique sculpture.
