3D Design and Product Development
- Provides a comprehensive overview of 3D technology
- Focuses on design technique and tools
- Explores the design process from concept to creation
3D design and product development courses provide instruction on how to translate concepts into digital designs, fabricate them using 3D printers, and turn them into finished products. Learn how to combine art, science, and technology to create aesthetically pleasing, functional, and sustainable designs. Course work covers solid and surface modeling, design tools and approaches, and a broad range of industrial and consumer applications, from personal fabrication to mass production and rapid prototyping. Lab and site visits provide hands-on experience with a variety of desktop 3D printers and scanners.
Develop and improve your industrial design drawing skills for both analog and digital applications.
Learn to use Sculptris, a free digital sculpting and 3D modeling program used in the visual effects, animation, and video game fields.
Learn the fundamentals of photorealistic rendering using industry-standard software Luxion KeyShot in this hands-on, practical course.
Learn the SolidWorks interface and sketching and modeling tools, and then explore the planes and orientation of the 3D model space.
Learn to use the essential features and tools unique to ZBrush, a program used frequently in the visual effects, animation, and video game industries.
