CRFT 281 - 3-D Computer Modeling

An introduction to the use of 3-D modeling software for visualization, design, production, and presentation of Craft objects. Through tutorial exercises and individual projects, students become fluent in the use of this important tool. One piece of software (such as formZ, Rhino, etc.) that is both CAD accurate and affordable by individual artists is covered. As students gain proficiency, they apply the techniques to problems addressed in their major studio classes. Students taking the course for a second time explore the capabilities of the software in more depth and focus on intelligent sequencing of operations and using the tools in context.
