Course Description

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is a process to create three-dimensional objects by depositing layers of material under computer control. In this course we’ll use a consumer-level 3D printer to learn the basic workflow to turn raw ideas into physical objects using computer-aided design software (e.g., TinkerCAD and others) and even photographs. Come explore this exciting technology and its practical and artistic uses, such as home/hobby projects, toys and decorations. You’ll have an opportunity outside of class sessions to print predefined objects (see http://www.thingiverse.com) or objects of your own design on the class 3D printer throughout the semester. Requirements: Plan to install free, open-source software on your own computer, practice using it on your own, and allot extra time to print your own creations between classes. Lecture (plus Questions), Hands-On Activity (e.g., Computer, Art), Viewing Videos
