Most CAD/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) tools are designed to enable engineers to design and manufacture products. From the very beginning ArtCAM software has been developed to enable artists and designer to create whatever they can imagine. ArtCAM is used in a variety of sectors from jewelry and coin minting, to the design and manufacture of architectural cornicing and facades. The common theme across these sectors is the desire to produce intricate artistic forms with incredible detail that can then be quickly and easily machined or 3D printed. This class will introduce you to the process that will enable you to take a simple 2D drawing and convert it into a complex decorative relief and machine it.
This session will introduce architects and designers to the world of modernizing installations with artistic designs using software. Whether creating modern wave walls, artistic cladding, wall dividers, or something more traditional like corbels, appliques, inlays, and reliefs, this session will show you how to not only visualize the artwork but also how to manufacture the final design. This session features ArtCAM. AIA Approved
