Ready for more 3-D? Build on the skills developed in “Adventures in 3-D Printing” to explore how we can use technology to solve problems in and interact with the physical world! Learn professional programs and then make objects that move and fit together. We also create interactive objects such as clay tools and stamps. We explore how modeling programs like Sketchup and Rhino are suited to different needs, and use the tools at our disposal to create unique and advanced 3-D printed objects. Our focus is on problem solving and creative physical uses for the medium with opportunities to branch into questions of project proposals, renderings, and the relationship of the technology to the design process. At the end of the course, we celebrate with a group show of our work.
