Processing and Making with Rhino 7 (DA4348.01)

Derek Parker

Processing and Making with Rhino 7 is a course designed to leverage Computer Modeling to create prototypes, models, and functional objects through digital outputs. These outputs include 3D Printing, Laser cutting and engraving, and CNC milling. This course builds upon the skills learned in the class Modeling and Thinking in Rhino 7, and will explore the relationship between Computer Aided Design (CAD) models and how they are translated into real-world outputs for use in projects or as standalone objects. Particular attention will be paid to how these fabricated outputs react and respond in real-world applications as well as the pros and cons of each process and outcome. This course is aimed at building technical skills but will also consider aesthetics, functionality, and design concepts. Its ultimate goal is a feedback loop between conceptual development, workflow, and the generation of tangible objects initiated in 3D Modeling software. This course requires Modeling and Thinking in Rhino 7 or equivalent expertise to attent, and will culminate in a final portfolio of digitally fabricated 3D objects


Learning Outcomes:
Gain a working knowledge of 3D Printing, CNC milling, and Laser cutting.
Understand the different workflows and outputs associated with each tool.
Build experience translating 3D models and 2D vector graphics into physical outputs.
