Exploring Craft & Design: Innovations in Digital Manufacturing
This workshop dives into creative possibilities at the intersection of craft, design and digital manufacturing. Students learn basic to intermediate 3D modeling using Autodesk’s Fusion360 software and explore a variety of digital manufacturing processes including CNC machining, laser cutting and 3D printing. This workshop is ideal for the maker who wants to learn to incorporate digital fabrication into their practice and for experienced 3D modelers who want to advance their production skills and explore materials. Participants develop 1 to 3 designs and bring them through several iterations of production, refining the design and manufacturing processes at each step. Wood will be a primary material, but the concepts and methodology are applicable to all 3D media. Participants may incorporate other fabrication materials such as paper, fabric or plastics.
