DIGITAL DESIGN & FABRICATION
2014/2015, Semester 2
School of Design and Environment (Division of Industrial Design)
Modular Credits: 4
The aim of this module is to bridge the gap of translating ideas into 3D physical products. By making use of digital tools and equipment, one will be taught on how to create and fabricate 3D product digitally.
Areas to be covered:
1. Introduction to 3d Scanning – 3d Scanning will cover the principle and methods of post-processing data and constructing them into digital three-dimensional models.
2. CAD Modelling Translation – Student will be taught on methods to translate and create customize digital three-dimensional model using imported 3D OBJ or STL bodies’ meshes.
3. Digital Manufacturing –Introducing methods to translate 3d data to physical object via various digital manufacturing equipment.
Students are expected to gain an operationally-ready level of mastery through hands-on experimentation in project for all the areas to be covered.
EXPECTATIONS & DELIVERABLES
Students are expected to create a 3D physical product model at the end of the module. The model design will then be 3D-printed in-house by our EOS 3D printer.
