Digital Fabrication was an undergraduate elective paper that provided Art & Design students with the opportunity to explore various digital fabrication technologies, including laser cutting, CNC routing, and 3D printing. The focus of the course was on technical resolution and iterative making.
During the course, students were advised to maintain careful communication and consult with technicians regarding their project planning and the potential implications of their work in the 3D Workshop and digital fabrication technologies.
The structure of most papers within the course consisted of two parts. In the first part, students developed a proposal to guide their work and conducted creative experiments, research, and iterative developments. This phase allowed them to explore different possibilities and refine their ideas. In the second part, students further developed and refined their projects, with a particular emphasis on technical execution.
