From the screen to 3D: Explore digital design at the University of Sydney’s Open Day

Turn a digital design into 3D models at the push of a button at the University of Sydney’s Open Day on August 27.

The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning’s newest digital fabrication technology takes an image from 3D modelling software and generates an accurate replica of the object before your eyes.

Prospective students will have the chance to watch the MakerBot materialise a digital CAD model into a physical artefact. It will run in the hands-on activity area at University Place by the Quadrangle on Open Day.

From rabbits to miniature Empire State Buildings, the MakerBot allows students to visualise design concepts by converting them into plastic 3D models.

The technology enables students to quickly and accurately produce their designs and effectively rethink the way they design.

The MakerBot will be available to students throughout the course of their studies, in addition to other digital fabrication technologies and traditional model making techniques. 

Open Day gives potential students the opportunity to explore the diverse range of degree programs on offer at the University of Sydney, including those in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning.

There will be information booths in the Quadrangle where faculty representatives, career experts, and admissions advisers, will be on hand to talk one-on-one and answer questions.

There will also be mini-lectures and regular tours of the campus, residential colleges, and museums over the course of the day. Thirty minute tours of the facilities available to Architecture and Design Computing students will commence from 10am.

A seminar just for parents will be held at 11:30am in the New Law Building Annex – Auditorium 101. This will give them some useful information on what is involved in the admissions and enrolment process and how to help their child through the HSC and on to university life.

Food, drink, and entertainment will be available all day in the Quadrangle.  It’s a great day to meet new friends and learn how you can meet many more by becoming involved in some of our 200 clubs and societies.

Relax, soak up the atmosphere, and learn all you all you need to know about life as a Sydney student (or a parent of one).

Come and discover your future at the University of Sydney’s Open Day!
