Topics covered include:

5 days – Alias CAS Fundamentals (Computer Aided Styling): Creation of a 3D sketch Model from Designer’s sketches combining feature-function exercises in a workflow context project. The project affords students the freedom to explore real-world application with the reassurance of ‘over-the-shoulder’ instructor support. Interactive learning is actively encouraged through the use of whiteboard explanation and open discussion.

  • GUI, data and project structure
  • Curve-based modelling: 2D and 3D curves, project, intersect
  • Derived surfaces: draft/flange and sweep/loft/mesh
  • Freeform fundamental: CV editing and Align
  • Surface details: blends and trimming
  • Validation: analytic and aesthetic analysis

1 day – Alias Reverse Engineering Fundamentals: overlying of surfaces to reference scan/facet/mesh data

2 days – VRED Fundamentals: Creation of real-time and static (High Quality Image) renderings to support Design Review andpresentation collateral for Design sign-off and product marketingetails.
