Introduction to 3-D Solid Modeling for Design

This course is designed to teach the use of 3-D solid modeling CAD packages. Instruction includes how to use a 3-D CAD package to develop solid models in order to generate assemblies and 2-D drawings. CAD package used in a particular semester or a section of this course may depend on the industry or student's demand. Some of the commonly used 3-D solid modeling packages in the industry are SDRC'S I-Deas Master, SolidWorks, Pro-E, and Solid Edge. It is suggested that prior to registering for this course, students would inquire with the department as to which CAD will be emphasized in a given semester or a section of the course.

Maya: 3-D Modeling Basics

This course is designed for the true beginner. We will start by touring the Maya interface, then move into creating and texturing simple objects. From there we will learn techniques and tools to create and texture characters and complex shapes. This class will focus on polygon extruding, sculpting, texturing and lighting. No previous experience with 3-D art or Autodesk Maya is necessary.
