  • Description

    In this course, students will learn how to take their ideas from their imaginations into drawings, computer software and then into 3D form. Students will create objects based on contemporary issues in art and design. Professional imaging software will be introduced, including Photoshop, Illustrator, Rhinoceros, Meshmixer, MagicaVoxel, ReconstructMe, as well as other software for 2D and 3D design, scanning, and manipulation. Traditional and experimental methods of imaging and modeling will be introduced with an emphasis on current FabLab technologies including 3D scanning, 3D printing, laser-cutting, CNC milling and waterjet cutting. Students will engage with several fabrication laboratories and businesses in and around Gainesville through field trips to broaden their perspective on how these technologies are developed and implemented. Work will be contextualized through reading, discussion, and video presentations on the energy and technology industries that make digital fabrication possible. This course will culminate in a public, group exhibition.
