I have a strong interest in all kind of technology related to digital fabrication and the conviction that this new way of manufacturing will bring important benefits that will contribute to rise to the current social innovation challenges. As an Industrial Designer and Master in Marketing Management I am interested in the development of sustainable projects that benefit the community, applying marketing and design tools for their evaluation and implementation.
Week 1 Principles & Practices, Project management
work through a git tutorial + Build a personal website + plan and sketch a potential final projectMore..
Week 2 Computer-aided design
Experiment with different CAD tools, try as much as possible.Draw, model, render, animate a possible final project.More..
Week 3 Computer-controlled cutting
make lasercutter test part(s), Cut something on the vinylcutter design, make, and document a parametric press-fit construction kitMore..
Week 4 Electronics production
Make an in-circuit programmer by milling the PCB, then optionally trying other processesMore..
Week 5 3D scanning and printing
Test the design rules for your printer(s)
