NEWM-N 449 3D Prototyping for Visualization and Abstraction

3 credits

Prerequisties: None

This course incorporates advanced modeling, sculpting, articulation, and printing of 3D printed objects from computer-generated images for both visualization and abstraction. It also includes strategies for the collection, evaluation, and editing of various datasets, and the creation of manipulatives that represent both the abstract and the informative.

Core Competencies

  • Students will have the ability to develop, discuss, and implement from preproduction, to production, to post production of prototypes of 3D prints for use in various applications.
  • Students will have the skills to model, prepare, articulate, and print 3D objects using common practices for 3D printing.
  • Students will set-up 3D objects, for water tight printing using .stl and .obj file formats
  • Students will create at minimum of 1 applicable prototype for visualization of information.
  • Students will understand how to collect, manipulate, and create 3D prints from various data sets.
  • Students will learn entire production pipeline for creating geometry that can be printed at the most efficient costs and standards uses various data collection methods.
