ARTST 208 - Design for Function


4 credit(s)
3D modeling software is revolutionizing how we design and create objects. The ability to construct, view, and operate objects in virtual space allows a maker to fully develop ideas before constructing them in physical space. The broad variety of potential applications for this technology includes uses such as rapid prototyping, creating art objects, designing prosthetics, and replacing broken parts in consumer goods. Students will explore a variety of 3D modeling software to produce digital models that can be constructed with computer controlled fabrication technologies such as 3D printers and milling machines, or with traditional materials such as wood, metal, or clay. Basic course materials will be supplied; however, students may be required to purchase additional materials necessary to complete their projects.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Artistic Practice and Creative Process.
