Introduction to DIGITAL FABRICATION IN ARCHITECTURE

Digital fabrication is a process with computer-based machines and this technique is preferred by architects and product designers.

Digital fabrication tools strengthen the creative and productive process between design and manufacturing. It facilitates production with the ability to design a product and supports production from prototypes to final products. Digital fabrication is a process applied to design and production by which digital data is directed to produce the part geometry.

You will learn the various processes for implementing data-driven design. You will have the technical knowledge of designing, iterating, and converting data into 3D models into physical prototypes.
