Introduction to Digital Fabrication

Introduction to Digital Fabrication

This intensive 8-week course is an introduction to digital design and fabrication, as well as architectural techniques. Students will make the connections between computer-aided-design / computer-aided-manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software, digital fabrication technologies and terminologies used. Digital models will be made physical through additive and subtractive fabrication technologies including 3D printing, CNC routing, and laser cutting. In conjunction with new fabrication machines, use of standard woodworking tools (various saws and drill press) will be discussed and practiced. 

Materials used for projects include wood, paper, composite materials (MDF) and modeling base. End products created using learned skills will be tables, chairs and various digital and physical models.  A thorough understanding of workplace and shop safety will be a key component of the class.
