Interdisciplinary Fabrication

 

Open to all majors, my classes are taught in CMU's IDeATe interdisciplinary program. These courses take an integrative approach to design, art, and technology.

digiTOOL is a mini course offered in Carnegie Mellon University’s IDeATe department. This course is an introduction to the fundamental concepts, processes, and procedures for laser cutting, 3D printing, and CAD modeling.

Human and Machine Narrative

 

This course introduces students to Computer Aided Design (CAD) and laser cutting. This course teaches students the basic elements of mechanical systems while emphasizing the underlying physical principles. Through this course, students will develop an understanding of the principles and workings of elements, such as linkages, cams, and gears, which generate and convey mechanical motion. Students will also learn about basic prototyping techniques using paper, cardboard, wood and acrylic. Students will gain hands-on experience in designing and fabricating mechanisms through design project. As a culmination of their learning during the course, students will design and build final projects of mechanisms in motion. The class will involve working in teams and will emphasize hands on learning. Course website here.
