Goals
Application of the digital design and fabrication techniques through tools (software) and technologies (hardware) with the goal to provide an introduction of those tools within the creative and executive process of the different design and arts fields.
The course starts from a generic technical and theoretical explanation, focusing on the development of a personal project which
will explore the student specific field.
Target
ETSAV Students
BarcelonaTech Master Students
Useful background skills: CAD packages, programming, numeric control tools experience.
Destinataris.
Estudiants ETSAV
Estudiants Máster UPC
Coneixements previs útils: programes CAD, programació, utilització eines control numeric.
Strategies
In the new technological paradigm, adapting the new fabrication tools (hardware+software) to the mastership of a subject or field, enables the expansion of possibilities, the control, the complexity and the richness of the generation and fabrication process.
Technologies
Each project will developp the material properties of its research( Paper, wood, metal, leather, felt, ceramic, textiles)
It will explore in parallel its numerical control:
-Cutter/Engraver (Laser or Mechanic)
-CNC milling machine (Numeric Control)
-FDM (Fused Depostion Modeling)
-SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
Tools
Generative modelling (RhinocerosGrasshopper)
Mesh refinament (MeshLab)
G-code (programacio maquines CNC)
EXTRA Course
A useful practical 4-day-course will be
held, to provide powerful knowledge of
grashopper, key in the course.

Objectius
Aplicacio de les tecniques de disseny i fabricacio digital a traves d eines (software) i tecnologies (hardware) amb l objectiu de facilitar la introduccio d aquestes eines dins dels processos creatius i executius dels diferents camps de l arquitectura i el disseny.
El curs parteix d un desplegament teoric i tecnic generic, per acabar centrant-se en el desenvolupament d un projecte personal que explori la disciplina concreta del estudiant.
Estrategies
En el nou paradigma tecnologic, adaptar les noves eines de fabricacio (hardware+software) al mestratge d una disciplina o ofici,
permet ampliar les possibilitats, el control, la complexitat i la riquesa del proces de generacio i fabricacio.
Tecnologies
Cada projecte desenvolupara les propietats del material que investigui (Paper, fusta, metall, cuir, feltre, ceramica, textils)
Explorara en paralel el control numeric:
-Talladora/Grabadora (Laser o mecanic)
-Fressadora CNC (Control Numeric)
-FDM (Fused Depostion Modeling)
-SLS (Selective Laser Sintering
Eines
Generative modelling (Rhinoceros Grasshopper)
Mesh refinment (MeshLab)
G-code (Machine programming lenguage)
