Application of the digital design and fabrication techniques through tools (software) and technologies (hardware) with the goal to provide an introduction of those tools within the creative and executive process of the different design and arts fields.
The course starts from a generic technical and theoretical explanation, focusing on the development of a personal project which will explore the student specific field.

Students and professionals from fields
-technical (Architecture, Engineering)
-artistical (Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Fashion design, Comunication Design, Jewlery)
-Applied arts (Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking )

In the new technological paradigm, adapting the new fabrication tools (hardware+software) to the mastership of a subject or field, enables the expansion of possibilities, the control, the complexity and the richness of the generation and fabrication process.

Each project will developp the material properties of its research( Paper, wood, metal, leather, felt, ceramic, textiles). It will explore in parallel its numerical control:
Cutter/Engraver (Laser or Mechanic)
Fressadora CNC (Numeric Control)
FDM (Fused Depostion Modeling)
SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)

Generative modelling (Rhinoceros, Grasshopper)
Material Behaviour (Processing)
Mesh refinment (MeshLab)
G-code (Machine programming lenguage)
