Fab Friday: TOOLING WITH THE 3D PRINTER, Brooks Oliver

Fab Friday: TOOLING WITH THE 3D PRINTER, Brooks Oliver

NCECA hopes its members and the greater ceramic community have enjoyed continued access to the 2016 Fab Lab with the online rebroadcasts of the LIVE STREAMED conference sessions, culminating in today’s video of the final session on Friday afternoon, featuring Brooks Oliver:

I am curious about ways in which new technologies can influence my process working with clay; and, vice versa, how my practice working with clay can impact my interactions within Computer Aided Design. My presentation will discuss my process and how I have used 3D printers to generate customized tools to aid in the creation of my work.

-Brooks Oliver

Emergence of new technologies and their application to ceramic art and learning represent exciting possibilities that will influence the field’s continued evolution in the 21st century. Many of these technologies are becoming more accessible and some are even DIY…

Del Harrow, Camilla Friedman-Gerlicz and Grant Landreth present approaches they are exploring through their own studio work with computer aided design and clay. This presentation will discuss methodologies and techniques for parametric modeling and hybrid digital/analog fabrication. Demonstrated processes will include Grasshopper parametric modeling for Rhino, CNC machining, and direct 3D printing clay. Friedman-Gerlicz and Landreth are both currently enrolled in the Special Student program at Colorado State University.

Fab Friday – Anna Calluori Holcombe & Shoji Satake life from the 2016 FabLab

3D printing is “just another tool in the tool box,” but the implementation of this technology within the ceramics curriculum has its challenges. Among those are facilities, funding and competent staffing. The rewards become evident as students embrace the technology to carry out their concept in a unique way not possible without it.  This week, join Anna Calluori Holcombe for her part of the co-lecture, “TEACHING TECHNOLOGY: CHALLENGES AND REWARDS”
