SART 17.15 3D Design and Digital Fabrication

This course is an introduction to basic three dimensional design principles and the relationship between structure and space. Students will learn fundamentals of design ideologies to design and construct objects and structures that use cutting edge computer modeling and 3D fabrication processes to create forms ranging from everyday utilitarian objects to structures for specific sites on campus. Material investigations and problem solving skills to design innovative solutions to real world problems will be undertaken. Computer drawing and fabrication using the program Illustrator, and 3D modeling with Rhino, 3D Printers and CNC Routers will be taught and used. Students will develop skills needed to communicate design concepts and develop personal approaches to design as well as to construct them. The projects include forms based on aesthetic as utilitarian design.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
