Reflections on Being New to Digital Fabrication
Abstract: The process of using digital fabrication is exciting, but it can be fraught with setbacks and pitfalls, especially for those that are new to the technology. This paper strives to outline some of the issues digital fabrication beginners will experience and to provide a guide of the questions to ask and consider before introducing digital fabrication to the classroom. Budget concerns, classroom applications, technology considerations, safety concerns, and 3D designs will all be discussed.
