This course explores the relationship between digital fabrication tools and contemporary artistic practice. Students will be guided through the process of using 3D printers, laser cutters, and power tools in a studio environment. The class has a theoretical focus on machine use within the process of design. Lectures and hands-on activities are supplemented by 2D vector-based programs, digital photography software, and 3D modeling programs. Students will learn how to use the computer as both a design tool and as a tool for fabrication. This course will also discuss the ethical dilemmas involved with 3D printing.
