The class will cover the basics of digital fabrication: in other words, how to go from an idea you can code to a physical object. We’ll also briefly cover different digital manufacturing processes (3D printing, laser cutting, CNC, vinyl cutting) and then do a customizable project that shows some of the constraints of one of those technologies. Open to people 17+. Some programming experience encouraged but not required.
