Denise Bookwalter's "Advanced Printmaking Workshop: Hybrid Printmaking" class created a frame to house modular matrices using Rhino software and FAR's ShopBot CNC router. Students will create laser engraved relief blocks and place them within the frame to generate large scale collaborative prints on the 48” x 96” Takach Etching Press.

Using Rhino and Grasshopper, Noah Brock designed and built these two models as teaching tools for Dr. Marlo Ransdell's Graduate Furniture Design class. Composed of 24 pieces each, these objects demonstrate the complexity of design and structural strength one can create using simple joinery. Students are visiting FAR this week, when Noah will introduce them to joinery techniques using the ShopBot CNC router.
