OBDF 310 - Algorithmic and Parametric Object Design Fabrication

This course introduces students to advanced tools for parameter-driven assemblies and algorithm-driven 2D and 3D models in CAD software, and how such tools might be integrated into studio practices across art, craft and design. Students explore, through the use of digital fabrications tools (such as 3D printers and computer numeric controlled machines) planning, visualization, and production of complex 3D objects. Weekly exercises and assignments are designed to develop students’ technical proficiency in Algorithmic and Parametric CAD and 3D modeling software. Students produce projects through hands-on use of rapid prototyping technologies in combination with processes from other program areas. Milestone projects will traverse a range of advanced conceptual and technological topics relevant to practices and discourses in art, craft, design and technology.
