This course will introduce students to digital fabrication techniques as part of a thoughtful and iterative fabrication process. Students are encouraged to creatively explore theoretical frameworks and speculate wildly to develop project concepts centered around lines of critical inquiry and iterate prototypes using laser cutters, 3D printers, as well as introductory circuits and analogue and digital sensors. Vector-based and 3D modeling software like Adobe Illustrator, TinkerCAD, and Blender will be introduced along with the popular open-source Arduino and Processing/p5.js frameworks. Best practices working with various material media will also be introduced. This course is open to students at all skill levels. No previous fabrication or programming experience is required or assumed.
