4.501 Advanced Design Projects in Digital Fabrication


Class Info

Integrates iterative design on paper with physical prototyping across many scales, thereby addressing digital fabrication and online presentation as a single design process. Begins with machine learning and moves on to stepped design and production process using 3-D printing, laser cutting, and CNC machining. Students complete a final project in which they individually design and fabricate a functional piece of furniture. Additional work required of students taking graduate version. Preference to MArch and Department of Architecture majors and minors.
