summary The use of digital fabrication in the production and making of architecture is becoming a prevalent vehicle for the design process. As a result, there is a growing demand for computer-aided design (CAD) skills, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) logic, parametric modeling and digital fabrication in student education. This paper will highlight three student projects that look to ingrate computational prototyping with digital fabrication techniques in the production of architecture. The goal is to hybridize fabrication techniques of sectioning, tessellating and folding to educate students in CAD, CAM, parametric modeling and digital fabrication. Rather than repeating conventional approaches or recreating from precedent, mixing techniques challenges students to understand the CAD technique or parameters for modeling, translate for CAM production and deal with real world constraints of materials, time and tectonics. In the end, these projects are critical of the digital and projectively speculate on the architectural detail in an age of digital ubiquity.
