3D Design and Product Development
- Provides a comprehensive overview of 3D technology
- Focuses on design technique and tools
- Explores the design process from concept to creation
3D design and product development courses provide instruction on how to translate concepts into digital designs, fabricate them using 3D printers, and turn them into finished products. Learn how to combine art, science, and technology to create aesthetically pleasing, functional, and sustainable designs. Course work covers solid and surface modeling, design tools and approaches, and a broad range of industrial and consumer applications, from personal fabrication to mass production and rapid prototyping. Lab and site visits provide hands-on experience with a variety of desktop 3D printers and scanners.
Learn the foundational tools of 3D printing and 3D scanning, and gain an introduction to the 3D design industry.
Learn the basics of building complex 3D mesh forms, and become familiar with the workflows and tools for polygon modeling.
