Welcome to Emily's first lesson on digital fabrication, where we will be learning how to 3D print!
In this lesson students will be learning the basics of Rhino, a 3D design computer software in order to create their own puzzle pieces that will be 3D printed!
Students will be collaborating with other classmates in order to design individual puzzle pieces that will fit together. They will be modeling their pieces in clay first to use as a reference and guide and recreate their ideas on Rhino. They will be applying math, engineering and art skills in order to create geometric and proportional designs that can be put together in a structural and stable way, using principals and elements of design and creative thinking. After puzzle pieces have been printed students will decorate each piece using water colors, sharpies and acrylic paint. The puzzle pieces will contain imagery that focuses on a subject or class they have struggled in the most in their education. Through creating images and remembering processes and facts students use the materials and form to make connections between art and other subjects and how they may be relevant to art making skills and processes.
