Seminar week for 1st year students

“Robotics isn’t always the best way.
A clever mixture of conventional model building techniques is the optimal way.”

In 5 intensive days the students get to know better both the hardware and the software to successfully use 3D printing technology to generate a 3d printed site model. This basic workshop is part of the compulsory propaedeutic phase of the Course of Design and Construction I of the Chair of Professor Andrea Deplazes.

Structured with daily workshops and question rounds, the students are taught on a click by click basis to essentially understand the workflow and after, are left alone to use it in order to complete their respective plot of the Poblenou neighbourhood in Barcelona.
