Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

MPP067 Datorstödd modellering/Computer aided modeling or PPU010 Computer aided industrial design (CAID) or equal

Aim

This course will give the students a deepened knowledge and build upon their existing competence in modelling and visualization in 3D CAD - systems.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

Have acquired advanced knowledge and skills to model and visualize geometries in a 3D CAD/CAID - system.

Have acquired advanced knowledge and skills in working with real-time visualization software

Content

The course is divided into three different sections:

1. Concept modeling - 3 workshops in which various programs are used to work with the concept geometries.

2nd Advanced surface modeling and visualization - lecture / exercise methods of how to work with advanced surface modeling, preparation for export to other CAD - system. Lecture / exercise on how to create photo-realistic images from digital surface

3rd Presentation of Design - lecture / exercise on real-time presentation and animation.


Organisation

This course will be based on partly scheduled, supervised tutoring and practical exercises. Theory and practical exercises will be mixed.

Literature

Will be selected at start of the course.

Examination

An active participation in class in addition to concluded and reported projects, specified in the course and a small exam.
