3-D Printing & Mold Making
This exciting and rigorous workshop is an introduction to Rhinoceros 3-D modeling software, 3-D printing, multi-part rubber mold making, and casting. Students create their own 3-D-printed parts for mold making and plastic casting. The class explores and discusses the potential of 3-D technologies and practices as it relates to industry as well as an individual studio practice. This workshop is structured to provide an environment for students with little previous experience and help guide them to feel comfortable and knowledgeable using these new techniques and methods in their own studio.
