Participants of this summer will be introduced to the digital side of fabrication. Using the college’s state-of-the-art machine tools, explore 3D printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, and large format computer guided wood cutting machine. Students will learn all software that is needed to create/design files for each machine as well as the software for each machine interface. Also included this summer will be the opportunity to create a circuit driven robot with easy programmable instructions. You will be encouraged to utilize all machines in the lab/space to edit and upgrade the programmable robot that you will create from a pre bought kit, provided by the camp.
