Please join us on Wednesday, March 01 at 2:00pm in MCA 530 for a presentation by Greg Sims, Assistant Professor, Material Art and Design; introducing the new 3D printing technologies and resources now available in the Material Innovation Centre.

These machines offer a wide range of material possibilities and finishes, from quick prototypes and models to quality production and manufacturing. Suitable for all disciplines including, jewellery, sculpture, industrial design, environmental design and more.

We will set up and print several parts… bring along one of your own small STL files for the chance to have it printed.

Everyone is welcome... See you at the MIC!

The Material Innovation Centre is now offering help for all students in need of assistance with common 2D and 3D design program software. Student monitors with knowledge and experience using Rhino 3D, Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign are available on Tuesdays (3D) and Thursdays (2D) from 6:30- 8:30pm, throughout the Winter 2017 semester.

 

Come to work, drop-in to ask questions... get (or give) help... learn and share among your peers.

 

•       Technical advice and assistance for common design software

•       Troubleshooting, file checking and proper formatting advice for 2D and 3D outputs

•       Advice on 3D printing

 

The MIC is also starting to offer hands-on, student access to 3D printing technologies (Formlabs, Form 2 and Lulzbot Mini) This will roll out in the next few weeks... Stay tuned! We will be adding software tutorials sessions and access to 3D printers as the semester progresses. 



 

Everyone is welcome. See you there!

Francis LeBouthillier, Faculty of Art, Making Digital Matter:  From Analog to Digital & Back Again

This presentation will include new developments from Francis’ Making Digital Matter Surgical Training Fetus Project. This project involved the development of a series of fetal models that were created directly from MR and CT scans employing the technologies of 3D printing. Francis will also present a series of fetal and maternal models used to simulate fetal anomalies to provide surgical training for a group of international surgeons at the recent Fetal Growth Conference hosted by Mount Sinai and the University of Toronto. This body of work represents the culmination of over 16 years of research, development and collaboration with fetal surgeons and researchers.

Coffee and light snacks will be served.

These models (from second- and third-year environmental design studios at OCAD) represent only one aspect of the work within environmental design – that of three-dimensional model making. They are the tip of the iceberg. We are not seeing the research or the sketches, plans, sections, elevations or perspectives, let alone the virtual computer modeling of the building. The range, scale and complexity of our programs and our imagined worlds are vast, but models give us something material and measurable: they represent the physical manifestation of creative thought and creative process in the shaping of our built environments.

ed/3d models and environmental design in environmental design we design environments. we make spaces that frame the experiences of daily life – we start with concepts and move to diagrams, we develop these three dimensionally and then, gradually we develop the shape of space and imagine its material aspects. every decision either layers the central idea with complexity and harmony or incrementally diminishes the power and clarity of that idea. every decision carries with it the baggage of agenda – what are the political, ethical, social, ecological concerns we as designers bring with us and how are they challenged within the structure and perceived limitations of any program? these models (from a variety of second and third year environmental design studios) represent only one aspect of the work within environmental design – that of three-dimensional model making. they are the tip of the iceberg. we are not seeing the research or the sketches, plans, sections, elevations and perspectives let alone the virtual computer modeling of the building. the range, scale and complexity of our programs and our imagined worlds are vast but models give us something material and measurable. they represent the physical manifestation of creative thought and creative process in the shaping of our built environments. stuart m. reid curator february 2008

1965 was a rather amazing year: Canada got its own flag, Martin Luther King, Jr., marched from Selma to Montgomery, Sonny & Cher released their hit single “I Got You Babe” and Toronto’s futuristic new City Hall opened for business.

As part of the 50th-anniversary celebrations for City Hall – one of Canada’s most distinct architectural landmarks – two students in OCAD University’s Digital Futures graduate program created and mounted installations (OCAD U was an official exhibit partner for the anniversary event).

Beam Me Up!

With her interactive installation Beam Me Up!, Monica Virtue sought to transport visitors through time. Inspired by the Star Trek transporter set, Virtue incorporated sensors and wireless radios, as well as videos she created from images drawn from the City of Toronto Archives, Toronto Reference Library and Toronto Film, Television and Digital Office.

3D City Magic

Mehnaz Aydemir’s interactive installation featured a replica of City Hall created on site during the day by a 3D printer. In addition, Aydemir produced a children’s game that involved participants selecting and holding Plexiglas models of 12 historic Toronto buildings and activating a screen that provided information on the structures they had selected.
