As the pulse of technological adaptation quickens, the need for a critical context around digital fabrication is more important than ever before. Digital Materiality is an exploration of the foundational concepts and processes involved in the production of digitally fabricated object-oriented sculpture. In this course the primary focuses are learning the basics of the computer-aided design software Rhinoceros 3D, photogrammetry 3D scanning using Trnio, laser cutting, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing, and CNC routing. The course will culminate in a final project to be output on the digital fabrication equipment at Anderson Ranch and mailed back to students with shipping and materials covered by the studio fee.
