OBDF 210 - CAD and Digital Fabrication

This course introduces students to the use of industry standard CAD (Computer Aided Design) software and Digital Fabrication tools (such as 3D printers and computer numeric controlled machines) for the planning, visualization, and production of 3D objects across a breadth of mediums and practices. Weekly exercises and assignments are designed to develop students’ technical proficiency in CAD and 3D modeling software. Students will produce projects through hands-on use of rapid prototyping technologies in combination with studio processes within art, craft and design studio areas.  Milestone projects will traverse a range of intermediate-level conceptual and technological topics relevant to practices and discourses in art, craft, design and technology.
