ARTZ 252y - Sculpture Studio: 3D Computer Modeling and Printing

Credit(s): 3

This course is a lecture/lab that focuses on the use of 3D printing systems and their potential in producing elements of sculptural works. Students will learn how to design, lay out and produce three dimensional works and explore the possibilities of using CAD software as viable terrain for creative thought.  Students will be encouraged to incorporate mixed media into their projects and resolve their pieces as finished works of art. This course may be repeated for a total of nine credits.  Students receiving financial aid or veteran’s benefits should check with the Financial Aid Office before repeating this course. (Spring Semester)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Develop sculptural pieces designed for 3-D printer, demonstrating a familiarity of x, y, z, coordinates in CAD software and
  • Apply basic 3-D design concepts in the digital realm.
  • Explore the possibilities and limitations of both software and hardware in the process of 3-D sculpting.
