SKILL

A collection of helpful slides about:

 2D Drafting, 3D Modeling and Rapid Prototyping 

In collaboration with:

Sapienza Design Factory

Most of my work focus on the Design Driven Innovation and Design Thinking method.
I truly believe in working with the user, instead that for the user.

 

I’ve earned a lot of experience in digital fabrication as a rapid prototyper for the Sapienza Design Factory Lab.

I've been working on many different design topics both as tutor for Sapienza University and as 3d modeling teacher for Quasar University.
 

I love Blender3d and i’m an Authorized Rhino Trainer (Rhino 6.0).
 

I’ve been doing international presentations and workshops to showcase my research/projects, both for design conferences and design companies.

 

My Ph.D. research is focusing on Future Craft.

DESIGN CORE

Lateral Thinking

From Bachelor to Ph.D. in Design, I've always been eager to learn and confront topics outside my comfort zone. Working as a tutor/teacher, I had to be able to fast jump between projects, to make lectures, and to show critical thinking.

During my experience abroad, I could meet people from all over the world and work in international teams.

Digital Soul

In ten year of experience, I've mastered the art of technical drawing and become a professional 3D modeler with NURBS, mesh, and generative design software. 

Working in a Fablab, I had to optimize and run digital fabrication techniques such as CNC milling, laser cutting, foam cutting, 3d scanning, and 3D printing.

I believe direct manufacturing is the future and I Think Additive.

Craft Dna

Making stuff has always been my passion. With a background in art school, I became familiar with sustainable materials like ceramic and wood and advanced my skills in painting and drawings. I truly respect craftmanship and traditional craft. My Ph.D. research goal is to find common ground between digital fabrication, future craft, and post-industrial design.
