MIT Media Lab's Arbitration Case Example Rapid Learning in 3D Printing

⇒In addition to a recent collaboration with London's Royal College of Art (RCA), exploring emerging futures platforms with a 'bench-top factory' investigation into the implications of desktop manufacturing's potential, Formlabs has partnered with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for another Has participated in high profile educational project. (MIT).

The MIT Media Lab's Intermediate Matters group was studying the potential of digital modeling as part of their New Principles of Computational Design and Additive Manufacturing class, and in just four weeks the MIT and Harvard GSD had exceptional graduate students from different disciplines. This talented group of researchers studied form, formation and formation by means of 3D printing with complex and innovative results.

Student Judith Amores' interesting video was inspired by the topic of chemical reactions.

To quote the course summary: "The MAS.500 Principles of Computational Design and Additive Manufacturing module will explore making through the lens of design, with a particular focus on Designing for Additive Manufacturing. We provide students with CAD software and computational design We will introduce you to the tools with which to create your own projects during the module. Additionally, we will explore computational design and digital fabrication in a range of fields, including architecture, biology and mechanical engineering. Enrolled students will explore digital and physical forms. will gain insight into processes and acquire skills that will be applicable to all scales and disciplines.Students will be expected to complete a final video project linking assignments for each session to demonstrate their understanding of the material.

Sessions included practical tutorials in the Mediated Matter Lab space and direct use of various different Prosumer 3D printers in fused deposition modeling and stereolithography 3D printing techniques such as the MakerBot Replicator 2 and Formlabs Form 1 machines. Given the pace of the course, according to the session schedule below, the results are exceptional on the one hand, and encouraging on the other, as it shows that when approached in the right way, desktop 3D printing and the surrounding Skill set is required. Can be learned in less time for efficient use.

The range of designs produced by the group is generally centered around biomolecular design, with a number of visual and technical approaches that differ significantly from each other in the form of finished pieces. In fact, some of these models are not a lifetime away from complex geometric math art, which has proven to be a highly and increasingly popular form of three-dimensional printed culture retailed by prominent designers and artisans such as jewelers.

How long will it take for a dedicated, disciplined newcomer to reach the stage of being able to produce designs that are retailable? The educational projects run by the MIT Mediated Matter Lab certainly prove to be worthy of reporting for their ability to inspire the creation of home-based small and medium enterprises and the artisans of tomorrow with today's emerging popular technologies.
