3D DIGITAL TO ANALOG will address the development of formal organization through digital and analog modeling tools. The class will use and interpretation of line, surface, volume and color in modeling. Lectures, workshops and assignments will demonstrate and apply digital modeling using Rhinoceros 5 3d modeling techniques and output tools: Laser cutting, CNC milling, and 3D-printing. How do models produced with each of these outputs differ in development and design process? The three physical model outputs will produce designs that work individually and collectively. Each student or group of students will produce a “tile” that will be one component of a larger surface. Parameters will be set that allow the group to read as a composition. Adherence to these parameters and their integration into an independent design will define part of the evaluation of the individual project. In addition, targeted exercises will develop the students’ abilities to work with color, collaboratively develop modeling strategies, collaborate on digital files, and explore the medium of both documentation and communication of ideas.
