What is Digital Fabrication?
Digital Fabrication is the process of using a computer controlled machine to produce a specific design that has been created through using computer aided design – or CAD. The machine can cut, draw, burn or print your design depending on what the design is best suited for.
What can it be used for?
Learning different skills in digital fabrication can help you in so many areas, not just for those people interested in technology or engineering. Anyone who enjoys art, crafting or more generally making can benefit from learning skills in creating computer designs and learning about different machines to produce a specific product based on their designs.
How long are the sessions?
Most sessions are scheduled for a maximum of 1 hour. (Getting started with Inkscape is longer). However, you can request a 1-2-1 with one of our team afterwards in case you have any more questions or want some more specific information.
