ARCH 3250 BDA WORKSHOP FALL 08
This workshop will focus on developing a familiarity and a skill set pertaining to computer aided manufacturing technologies (Laser Cutters, 3D printers, CNC Milling Machines, 3D Scanners). Through several short design exercises, students will develop the technical know-how to wield this equipment; they will experiment and develop an understanding of how using these technologies in various sequences may produce and inform a design process and its eventual product. Students will primarily use Rhino, Sketchup, and AutoCAD. No prior experience in these platforms is necessary. Throughout the semester, students will produce several designed objects, as well as a design portfolio chronicling their explorations, process work, and final products.
