Design With Technology 2
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: GDES 3B20 Design With Technology 1
or GDES 3B20 Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 1
or MAAD 2B36 Jewellery/Metalsmithing: CAD/CAM
and 8.0 credits, including all first-year requirements (5.0 credits)
This course will build on the knowledge and skills acquired in Design With Technology I, by introducing advanced Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing topics in the context of further design and production. Students will become familiar with the CAD operations required to create complex three-dimensional parametric computer models, and output sophisticated two-dimensional representations including realistic renderings. Students will also become familiar with advanced CAM issues, such as process integration, optimization for manufacture, mass customization, material experimentation and aesthetic considerations. Students will achieve a substantial understanding of the advantages, limitations and implications of CAD/CAM technologies, and will consider how their own emerging practices might best incorporate these technologies.
Anti-requisite: Students who have taken GDES 3B78 Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 2 may not take this course for further credit.
Notes: Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
