Computer Aided Design III
- Departmant of Architectural Modelling
The course provides a basic introduction into 3Dstudio Max. The students will learn how to create models in Max, apply modifiers, create and assign materials, create lights and cameras, and how to make animations. Throughout the course the students will do exercises. Contents: Working method with Max, creating primitives, the teaching system Moodle. Modifiers and accurate dimensions. Dimensioning helpers, layers and spiral staircase. Standard materials and lights. Material types for standard scanline rendering. Mental ray material and renderer. Interior rendering with mental ray. Cameras, keyframing and animation. Animation and curve editor. Final animation techniques.
