Point, Curve, Surface, Solid – 3D Modeling and Fabrication (VA2117.01)

Farhad Mirza

This course explores methods of translating imagined shapes into three-dimensional objects. Students will study how sub-division, approximation, and discretization can be used to separate forms into component parts. Course work will focus on how systematic breaking-down of form reveals qualities that can be intentionally altered, thus changing their properties (visible or otherwise). Through exercises that explore part-to-whole relationships students will be introduced to Rhinoceros—an industry standard 3D modeling program—and learn how to create inputs for 3D printers and laser-cutters.
