Digital Method of the Month: Digital Drawing

Digital Method of the Month Mash up

 

The digital method of the month meeting is a safe space to freely discuss the practicalities of learning and implementing a new digital skill in your research.   

Each month we select a method, and we have an honest and practical discussion on what it takes to learn and master it. How much time will it take to get the basics? What are the software options available? What are the most common pitfalls? Where can you find more info on the subject? Etc...    

The method of this month is digital drawing in humanities. Have you ever heard about AutoCAD and Inventor? Stefano and Daniel will show you why you should take into account this software when documenting, analysing and rendering the material culture. 

We will discover potentialities of working with vectors and 3D modelling compared to a raster-based approach: from 2D survey, to produce informative graphics, to the elaboration of digital models and 3D printing. 

This is a beginner level event, and no previous knowledge of the method is required.   

To attend this event, you will have to join the associated Microsoft Teams group. The link to join the group will be sent to the attendees prior to the course start date, so please make sure to do so in advance.
