Principles of Computational Design and Additive Manufacturing

MAS.500 CAD Module
All levels
Every Fall
Prereq: Permission of instructor

The MAS.500 Principles of Computational Design and Additive Manufacturing module will explore making through the lens of design, with a specific focus on designing for additive manufacturing. We will familiarize students with CAD software and computational design tools with which to create their own projects throughout the course of the module. Additionally, we will explore computational design and digital fabrication across multiple fields, including architecture, biology, and mechanical engineering. Students enrolled will gain insight into processes of digital and physical form finding and acquire skills that will be applicable across scales and disciplines. Students will be expected to complete a final video project linking the assignments for each session to demonstrate their understanding of the material.
