CAD: digital artisanship

with Tanja Falkenhayner

date: 21st - 25th of August | duration: 5 days, 35 hrs
participants: min.6 / max. 8 
language: English and German


3D Design has become an established procedure in all modern manufacturing processes. In this workshop, I wish to introduce this fascinating tool to jewellers.
We will work with the software programmes RHINOCEROS and SCULPTRIS. I will introduce the freedoms of computer-aided modelling and the artistic possibilities offered by these applications.
RHINOCEROS, a construction programme for high dimensional accuracy, offers a number of tools for the design and variation of free forms.
Due its sculptural approach, SCULPTRIS is a useful supplement to the conceptual work in RHINOCEROS. The workshop will discuss the differences and strengths of both programmes. I will showcase the interaction of different tools and the application of commands on participants’ own projects.
We will have access to a 3D printer (FORM 1+). The designed objects can be printed immediately in plastic.

Previous knowledge in 3D Design is not necessary.
