ENVD 4152 - Digital Design and Fabrication Course uri icon



  • Teaches the student basic to intermediate concepts, strategies, materialities and lots of other interesting things around the topic of digital design and fabrication. In the last decade or so, DD+F (Digifab) has evolved from a novel, boutique approach towards design to a critical component of design + making especially in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Product design. Students will use 3d modeling (Rhino) and parametric plugins( i.e. Grasshopper) to investigate new ways of making using 3d printing, CNC machining, laser cutting and other digital fabrication processes. Learning strategies and concepts around DigiFab as well as looking at materiality in digifab and learning when/how/where to use these techniques will make students confident designers and marketable.
