Introduction to digital sculpting with Autodesk Alias

Design in the automotive industry has always been innovative and decisive in the market. The projection and visualization of the first concepts through surfaces based on specialised software for mass production or for prototyping. In this training, the surfaces that will simulate the reflections of light on the final product will be developed, visualising it in a real way.

The objective of this course is introduce students to creating a car model using surfaces from the conceptual design stage. This will allow real-time design from 2D drawings to highly complex 3D objects.

The course is primarily aimed at students and senior graduates in design. Automotive designers, 3D modelers, Engineers and Architects. Professional creative designers or professionals with knowledge of 3D.
