Desktop manufacturing – personal digital fabrication – is bringing "revolutionary changes for manufacturers and consumers." SITE is leading the way to introduce students to the excitement and power of digital fabrication. In this session Nick Sanham will demonstrate a 3D visualization and modeling program, FabLab ModelMaker, designed to support digital fabrication in schools. SITE’s executive director, Gary Marks, will describe an open-source digital fabrication library that SITE is establishing to support and encourage instructional use of digital fabrication. SITE’s new digital fabrication special interest group (SIG) will be formed during this session, and information about ways to incorporate digital fabrication into teacher preparation will be provided.
