Laser Cutting: Folded Lamps


Apr 10th,

8:30am — 11:30am

Location: Weil Hall, Digital Fabrication Lab

About The Workshop

Strategic workflow from rhino to the laser cut product. This is helpful for flattening models built in rhino for laser cutting as an alternative solution to AutoCad. Additionally, it demonstrates the laser as a quick way of prototyping models and altering them to be foldable, glue-able structures.

Cross Disciplinary Connections

This workshop is great for students who use rhino and would like to laser cut directly from rhino. Additionally, it offers insight into more sculptural lighting and introduces artists in the field working with light and shadow.


A 3 Dimensional laser cut sculptural luminary. This will be designed by students and cut in the workshop.
