The IARc Department had its very own CAM Carnival to showcase the features of our Computer-Aided Making (CAM) equipment. CAM Carnival was held on February 23rd through February 24th and was meticulously coordinated by IARc Professor; Felicia Dean.
Professor Dean and a group of CAM Student Assistants led demos and presentations on how to use the machines they specialize in. Some of the showcased equipment were the vinyl cutter, laser cutter, 3-D MakerBot Printer, and other 3D scanners. Their demonstrations provided insight to how these tools are currently used in interiors and art so IARc students may have a better understanding on how to potentially use them in their course work.
Along with the demos, CAM Carnival featured keynote speaker, Vivian Beer. Beer has ample experience in technology and design. She creates digitally fabricated templates, JIGs, digitally fabricated furniture and art, and sculpture metals by hand. Not only did Beer speak about her work and experience; she also participated in the demos and gave students extra assistance with the tools and machines. Beer serves as an inspiration regarding practice in design and making for the future of interior architecture.
