ART 2452 - Introduction to Digital Design and Fabrication

This applied/hands-on studio class presents the foundations of digital fabrication technologies, including laser cutting and engraving, CNC milling, plasma cutting, and 3D printing. Utilizing various software, students will start by manipulating vector (curve) based 2D geometry, and work their way up to simple 3D geometric modeling. Designs created virtually will be optimized for each technology, and then be produced as actual, physical objects.

Prerequisite: ART 1030 with a grade of C or higher or permission of Head of the Department of Visual Arts
