IDES 242 Prototyping Design Concepts II

College of Art, Media & Design

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

This course will transition students from methods of analog modeling and prototyping to a basic introduction to digital means of problem solving and prototyping. Students will be introduced to the software used along with the digital tools in the Design Shop that will become an extension of the studio and design thinking - the Laser Cutter, the CNC Router, and the 3D printer. A series of stepped assignments and exercises that increase in their complexity will allow the students to form the basis of a rigorous iterative practice that allows them to confidently prototype increasingly complex ideas.
