Time: 9AM – 3PM
Discover how to print three-dimensional objects of your own design using CAD drafting software and PLA 3-D printers. In this exploratory workshop, students learn to model 3-D objects using CAD Drawing software and how to output to 3-D printers. Students work individually as they explore 3-D printing as a tool and as a singular artistic process. Students make a customized box, an animated character with moving features and a piece of wearable jewelry.
Media & Techniques:
Students begin with ideas and sketches, then discuss potential projects and begin fundamental CAD drawings of objects to be 3-D printed. Previous 3-D printing and CAD drawing experience is suggested but not required.
Demonstrations, discussions and instruction are given each morning and afternoon. Students are then introduced to the material and process to provide insight for 3-D-printed projects. Throughout the week, project intentions are discussed then brought to life in our 3-D printing facility, the “FabLab”.
