We've been looking forward all semester. Speculating about what the future landscape of digital fabrication might look like. Imagining how languages like processing and cheap open source tools like Arduino might allow for one individual or a small design team to create a whole interactive ecosystem.
In our four the project we'll look back however, at the tools and techniques we've encountered thus far. We've encountered a few types of 3d modeling software. We've worked with the laser cutter, cnc mill, and 3d printer. We've made two dimensional three dimensional and perhaps 2.5 dimensional work.
From our quick tour through this landscape of design and fabrication each of us will circle back to an idea we encountered and hoped to elaborate on. We'll go into more depth, more specialized work on a particular theme or project. This might involve scaling up or down, multiplying, or translating materials. We'll go in more than a dozen directions for awhile because we'll be moving as individuals. There will be bottlenecks, particularly in regard to printing and milling, but we will move through those. This is a time to individuate your concepts and themes, to get a little "post-digital".
