WOOD SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Ling-lin Ku and R. Eric McMaster
Digital Fabrication in Wood: Intro to ShopBot
This workshop will combine hand skills and digital technologies in woodworking. We’ll cover Rhino 2D and 3D design, V Carve Pro and ShopBot settings, the use of machine and hand tools, and finishing techniques. Whether you have experience or you are just beginning, this workshop will deepen your knowledge of 3D design and CNC routing, and help you develop a more comprehensive understanding of the capabilities of digital fabrication. Each student will design and fabricate two projects: a directed technical exercise followed by a self-directed project based on each their own interests. All levels.
Note: Students should bring a computer if they can; contact the studio operations manager if you are enrolled and are unable to bring a computer. firstname.lastname@example.org
