North Texas Digital Fabrication
Digital fabrication transforms digital designs into reality. It opens a world of opportunity for students and people to see their ideas come to life. The North Texas Digital Fabrication Group is part of the College of Visual Arts and Design (CVAD) at the University of North Texas (UNT). CVAD encourages creative futures for its diverse student population and the rest of the area. This group was formed to facilitate the free exchange of information on digital fabrication among members of the group. Group members are from North Texas area universities and engaged in some aspect of digital fabrication. The group has connected faculty of various academic levels and shared research interests to educate about new and exciting advancements in the field. In collaboration with the North Texas Digital Fabrication Group, IITTL has had the opportunity to be a part of a few community activities where the public has engaged in digital fabrication methods such as 3-D Printing.
