3DTD214 Lasercutting for Object Makers 3cr.


This is a multi-disciplinary course using laser-cutting technology to explore new ways of
designing and making art with digital design processes to achieve a physical outcome. The
course provides a hands-on introduction to laser technology as a resource for creative
applications within the art practice. Students will investigate the use of multiple materials
resulting in sculptural objects and installation concepts, jewelry and accessories, apparel and
functional products.  This process is particularly interesting for the creation of
multiples, for the fabrication of functional components, for the production of repeated simple
shapes and for the creation of one of a kind objects. In addition instruction in laser cutting
and software, students will be introduced to the use of hand tools, drills, cold connections, heat
forming and adhesives.
