Digital Fabrication: Make (Almost) Anything

Course Objective

Students will be able to learn concepts in Digital Fabrication and at the same time apply in creating a 3D object of his or her design.

Course Outline

S/N Module Description Module Objective Fees (without GST) Register

Getting Started with CAD (Computer - Aided Design)

The module introduces types of design software used for Raster and Vector designs. Participants will digitally draw, manipulate and transform images and objects using both types of software to be able to differentiate the use and application of each type. Participants will also develop a 3D design project using collaborative interaction within a team.
