IDES 241 Prototyping Design Concepts I

College of Art, Media & Design School of Design

1.5 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

This hands-on techniques studio advances essential 3D design communication skills to support the design process within The UArts School of Design. Building upon basic shop safety + tool use begun in the CORE Studies Program, students learn to apply physical making techniques towards more complex design challenges using analogue and basic digital methods in a shop context. 3D techniques exercises are focused on successfully expressing design 3D concepts using appropriate methods to support design problems addressed in the project studios of students’ majors. Topics include: shop safety and tool use, machine processes, conceptual model-making, and design specific 3D visual communication using both traditional media and basic graphic visualization software. This shop-based learning experience provides an intermediate level of tool instruction and material transformation approaches integrating a wide range of physical processes to express 3D creative concepts.
