This subject introduces students to the world of digital design and prototyping using the Rhinoceros software platform and the schools own state of the art Architecture Fabrication and Research Workshop. Rhinoceros is a core software platform utilised by industry for laser cutting, 3d printing, CNC routing, robotics, rapid prototyping and fabrication. Course instruction will be focused upon creating expertise with basic Rhino commands and general strategies for efficient and productive 3d modelling and prototyping.
A strong culture of making and prototyping is emphasised with output to include physical models utilising the Architecture Fabrication and Research Workshop laser cutting and 3D printing equipment.

1. Construct and manipulate Nurbs modelling software for the exploration of architectural form and space.
2. Employ digital fabrication technologies for the rapid prototyping and interpretation of architectural ideas.
3. Preparation and interrogation of digital models for the validation of architectural theories and concepts.
Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
Familiarity with CAD software and/or 3D modelling helpful but not required.
This subject is not available as a general elective. To be eligible for enrolment, the subject must be specified in the students’ program structure.
