ARTT 002B. 3D Design I: Introduction to Digital Methods

This course offers an introduction to 3D modeling with Rhino. Computer-aided design (CAD) is an essential tool for designers, and opens tremendous opportunities for a range of creative practices. Starting with the basics of orthographic drawing in a digital 3D environment, we will expand our skills and knowledge of 3D modeling through a series of individual projects. These projects will encourage students to explore the benefits of rapid prototyping as part of a robust design process, and will introduce digital design and prototyping methods such as 3D scanning, laser cutting, and 3D printing. Throughout the semester we will discuss the role and influence of these digital methods on contemporary art and design. This studio course may also be supported by lectures, readings, films, field trips, group discussions, and critiques as a way of developing perspective and putting our practice into context.
