ART 310 - 3D Modeling and Fabrication

Units: 3
Design and fabrication of 3D objects and artworks, from creation with digital solid modeling software to realization through 3D Printing, CNC Mills and associated technologies. Digital sculpting and engineering approaches to developing models for artistic and design goals.

Prerequisites: ART 246.
Repeatability: May be repeated for credit for a maximum of 9 units.
Possible Instructional Methods: On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.
Course Typically Offered: Variable Intermittently

Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Understand and describe standard terms, techniques, and tools for 3D modeling and fabrication;
  2. modeling and fabrication; 2. Create expressive, digitally sculpted solid models at high resolution; 3. Create complex, multipart parametric solid models with fitted constraints;
  3. Show proficiency at 3D scanning on a variety of scales with multiple tools;
  4. Composite, integrate and blend components of scans and built solid models to create a sophisticated and printable whole;
  5. Conceptualize, sketch, digitally model, 3D print, and finish a meaningful work of art or design;
  6. Research and assess developments in 3D printing, CNC milling, and other emerging fabrication technologies;
  7. Research and critically analyze the aesthetic and cultural impacts and consequences of the expansion of digital distribution from 2D to 3D in the form of standardized formats, high resolution 3D models, and low-cost media and equipment for rapid prototyping.
