Digital manufacturing technologies.
Real manufacturing of objects by digital machining based on the 3D models created by the students.

2. Practice:
Conduct, during the semester, practical exercises to apply the knowledge acquired in the discipline.

3. Project:
Accomplishment, during the semester, of two individual projects per student, the last of which in collaboration with the discipline of Project 1.
