CNC Fabrication Workshop
ARCH 46993 | Summer 2019
July 22 - August 8, 2019
This workshop will focus on the potential to design in parallel with CNC fabrication technologies. RhinoCam will allow participants to simulate milling effects in the friendly Rhinoceros environment. Workshop participants will engage hands-on with a 3-axis CNC router and manage the fabrication of a design entity. One will learn about tooling bits, feed settings, material setup on the table, running a file and troubleshooting possible errors. The course will also cover custom tool-paths to generate unique surface articulation and flip-mill techniques.
