The most innovative design experiences come from utilizing cutting-edge technology, and that’s exactly what students in Finlandia University’s International School of Art & Design have at their fingertips with a new 3D printer.
“This will be critical as we advance our aim of adding more 3D elements into the program that we offer,” Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Tom Adolphs said. “The possibilities are endless, which helps display our future vision for the graphics department and the International School of Art & Design as a whole. We’re always aiming to offer the most state-of-the-art programs possible.”
The new printer is available to all art and design students. Adolphs said it will be introduced as early as freshmen year for many art and design students, and will be a key piece of curriculum for 300- and 400-level classes.
Senior graphic design major Zong Deng played a key part in making the printer a reality, as he worked with Adolphs to put the printer together. The printer will be one of many unique elements ISAD has to offer students during upcoming Studio Days events.Tags: 3D Printer, Tom Adolphs, Zong Deng
