3-D Visualization II/III

3-D Visualization II/III
TOYD330/331

3–D Visualization ll - A more advanced version of 3−D Visualization I, this course continues the use of Rhino, the 3–D modeling program used in the construction of prototyping models. By using computer-aided design (CAD) programs (the same as in the toy industry), students learn advanced modeling and prototyping techniques. Students will be introduced to Studio MAX for several styles of rendering and basic animation skills. This course combines instruction on the computer with guidance in the standard requirements for the production of 3–D models through output to the rapid prototyping machine.
Prerequisite: TOYD231 3–D Visualization l.

3–D Visualization lll - This is an advanced computer lab course that allows students to continue to develop their 3–D modeling skills with Rhino and learn more advanced modeling techniques. Students will continue to develop their Studio MAX skills with more advanced rendering and animation skills. The course will introduce Adobe After Effects as a means to create more compelling digital video presentations with animation, titles, sound effects, and transitions. Content focuses on the advanced use of computer programs to output models for ongoing projects. Students apply acquired learning to improve toy design projects for use in their portfolios.
Prerequisite: TOYD330 3–D Visualization lI.
