Beginning Fab Academy
Today I began participating in pilot year of the Fab Academy program at AS220 Labs. The Fab Academy is based on the MIT course MAS.863 – How to Make (Almost) Anything and provides instruction in the mechanisms, applications, and implications of digital fabrication. I am starting a semester late, so I will be working on the current assignment while making up the first semester.
3D Molding and Casting (The Current Assignment)
Project Ideas: TARDIS (Police Box Outside).
Computer Controlled Cutting (Make-up Assignment)
Press Fit Project Ideas: Lamp / Lamp Shade, Moose Head, Cube, T-rex. (I will see what is working)
Final Project: Some type of wearable augmented reality, details TBD.
