Reason #37 Why Architecture is a great major: Rapid Prototyping

The first of [hopefully] many videos highlighting MIT's Architecture department and its resources. This video shows the production of a topographic site model for a design project I'm working on. A 3D model was created in AutoCAD, then broken down into layers and cut one at a time using a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) router. The whole process took about a full day, including file preparation and gluing / spraypainting the finished cut.

Sorry about the lack of voiceover. I edited this video in a crowded computer lab and wasn't able to record anything good. In its place, enjoy the music.
