Pursuant to the mission of SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) to prepare talented students for professional careers, the Sculpture Department uses Rhino 3D as the core of its 3D modeling digital output curriculum. Students are taught the skills necessary to model, analyze and output high quality finished works using additive manufacturing and laser cutting technologies. Throughout the process students are asked to reimagine the way things can be made and how they will reshape the world around them.
Professor Steven Jarvis has utilized 3D modeling tools for 20 years and has taught the digital based curriculum for the SCAD sculpture department since 2008. In his own practice, Jarvis uses Rhino 3D to model mechanical jewelry and objects.
