This course educates students in an array of digital design methods for creating physical objects. Participants gain fluency in crafting digital files for object-making, from initial design to machine language. Areas of focus include computer-aided design, additive manufacturing techniques, and 3D printing processes. Students learn to translate their ideas into unique objects through the setup and safe operation of 3D rapid prototyping machines.*  This course equips students with lasting skills for continuing to design and materialize their ideas with these emerging, affordable and accessible tools and techniques. 

*Fully remote students may print at home or provide files for 1-2 designs, to be printed and shipped by MassArt. Local students are given may opt to attend 1-2 optional on-campus printing sessions.


This is online class uses the Zoom platform.

For local students coming to campus to print, we urge you, if you are able, to be fully up-to-date on vaccinations, including boosters. Available vaccination sites can be found here.
