A collection of talks and workshops on how emeging technol¬ogies can enable a new form of Maker culture. It will focus on the relationship between material and making, and the use of digital tools in conceiving and fabricating products.
Advances in CAD/CAM technology has democratised pro¬duction and allowed designers to create increasingly com¬plex forms, but it has also resulted in a physical rift between the maker and the made object.
This event will explore how software can successfully merge with a heritage of making to create a new form of maker culture.
This workshop proposes to go beyond an introductory level of rhino and Grasshopper to demonstrate a workflow for;
- Generating forms
- Inputting material properties for Finite Element Analysis
- Outputting for Fabrication through crafts and CNC manufacturing.
