Laser cutting, carving machinery and computer numerical cutting -- all of which are methods used to turn digital files into physical objects -- will be on full display at the University of North Texas' Digital Fabrication Symposium. The event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, April 21, in Willis Library, 1506 Highland St. Registration is free to all.
The event, organized by the North Texas Digital Fabrication Group, will feature a keynote address from artist Laura Splan, a variety of presentations and panels, as well as a professional development workshop. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The hosts are a group of UNT faculty who sought to bring their shared research interest in digital fabrication into an organized effort. Among its members are representatives of the College of Visual Arts and Design, the Institute for the Integration of Technology into Teaching and Learning, and researchers from other universities.
