Explorations in Rapid Prototyping

COSC 89/189 Computational Fabrication was offered for the first time this Fall at Dartmouth, taught by Professor Emily Whiting. The course provided an in-depth study of 3D printing technology and cutting-edge research in computational methods for 3D design.

To culminate the term students presented independent design projects. The inventive array of products featured tileable gear art, smart gloves playing rock-paper-scissors, 3D mazes as light installation, a mobile app to create and simulate pop-ups, and much more. Students benefited from prototyping resources across campus including the Thayer School Machine Shop, Woodworking Shop and the Fabrication Lab in Sudikoff.
