Workshop Archive: Adobe Illustrator for Digital Fabrication

In this workshop, students will learn how to use and apply the computer-aided design (CAD) program, Adobe Illustrator for Digital Fabrication and CNC Machine. Adobe Illustrator is a vector design program that is a useful tool to design files for the Laser Cutter, CNC Router, and Vinyl Cutter. These are machines at the AS220 Labs, and can be used by members. This workshop is meant to cover how to properly design and prepare your files for the machines. A basic understanding of computer design and digital fabrication is recommended, but not required. You are also encouraged to bring your own Laptop if you already have the program, otherwise you may use the computers here at the Media Arts Lab.
