Description

How easy is it to design and build your own original action figures and game pieces? In this introduction to 3D modeling, you'll answer these questions as you explore the prototyping process and STEM to STEAM learning in the areas of anatomy, computer science and spatial dynamics. You begin by brainstorming your concept in a sketchbook, and quickly move to the computer where you learn to navigate the powerful 3D modeling software ZBrush. As you become proficient, you'll build and optimize custom toy parts and figures, resulting in dependable 3D models that have the possibility of commercial rapid printing -- a record of your ability as a budding toy designer.

Applies to: AT, Y3, YD

Description

Co-Works, RISD's state-of-the-art facility for digital fabrication, is the location for this course that introduces 3D printing technology, a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. Purposefully accessible, this course facilitates workflow through 3D scanning and the use of open-source 3D files, bypassing the usual digital prerequisites of Rhino or advanced 3D modeling skills. Basic Rhino 3D modeling instruction can be offered according to student interest. The course begins with an overview of 3D printing processes and their potential applications to all fields of art and design. Students develop their individual pieces utilizing the FDM (fused deposition modeling) and SLA (stereolithography) 3D printers. Once pieces are produced, various post-processing finishing techniques are demonstrated to further the work. Other digital fabrication technologies are also introduced as projects and student interest dictate: laser cutter, UV printer, plotter, vacuum former, large-format printer, etc. In line with RISD's interdisciplinary culture, the course is structured to integrate all individual creative practices and has applications to fashion, textiles, jewelry, product and industrial design, ceramics and moldmaking, as well as sculpture and painting. Please note that in addition to the lab fee, you can expect to have to buy additional supplies for this course. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized courses (jewelry, wood, metals) this may be higher.

Applies to: AN-E, IT-E, PM-E

Description

Discover the most important product design tool worldwide, SolidWorks 2016, by experiencing the virtual reality of 3D modeling and the tangible reward of 3D printing. As a solid modeler, utilizing a parametric system to define and describe space, SolidWorks has the distinct advantage of a chronological system of actions that define an object, and the ability to revise and edit those steps at any time. You'll learn the interface at a friendly pace, building an object of your choice -- first as a 2D sketch, then as a virtual 3D object and, finally, a physical 3D-printed piece.

Applies to: AN-E, ID-E, PM-E

Description

Acrylic paint dries very quickly, requiring a "medium" to keep it consistently fluid and workable. The acrylic paint section of any art store can be overwhelming, however, with virtually hundreds of mediums too expensive to experiment with and too time consuming to fully explore. This weekend intensive workshop breaks down the "goo" by introducing techniques and approaches for enhancing and expanding your acrylic painting experience. Students are introduced to glazing and glazes, building texture and surfaces, extending color, and creating opaque and transparent effects. Students also learn to use tools such as brushes, scrapers and mat knives in different ways. Experimentation and risk-taking is encouraged, enabling students to create a finished panel or canvas piece while gaining the confidence to choose mediums for individual projects. Please note that in addition to the lab fee, you can expect to have to buy additional supplies for this course. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized courses (jewelry, wood, metals) this may be higher.

Description

Fluency in vector drawing using Adobe Illustrator is bound to add depth to your portfolio and broaden your marketability in today's competitive design economy. You'll build on your existing familiarity with Adobe Illustrator to undertake three graphic illustration projects in a structured step-by-step format. You'll start with an illustration project that covers blends, effects and textures. You'll continue with a wallpaper project that introduces the repeat concept, and finish with a project that employs die lines and goes from flat to three-dimensional design. Registration, layers and file types are consistent topics throughout. You'll wrap up the course having demonstrated competency in this essential digital design workflow.

Applies to: AN-E, GR-E, IT-E

Prerequisite: Digital Design Techniques or Adobe Illustrator
