IDES 333 Digital Form

College of Art, Media & Design School of Design

3 credits 67.5 hours
300 level undergraduate course

This course introduces the student to 3D digital form development and communication skills as a vital part of the Design Process with a higher level of computer generated form accuracy, visual presentation, and physical objects/parts output via various rapid prototyping machinery. Using computational media and application of digital 3D development skills, students will enhance design communication of two and three-dimensional design, images, object fabrication, and presentations. The course offers technical instruction in how to conceptualize, develop, detail, and communicate design ideas through basic to complex digital 3D form. This course focuses on basic digital form development, digital imaging, three-dimensional computer modeling, and basic animating / interactive design presentations of 3D objects via digital sources and software. This introductory digital form course focuses on learning the fundamental cognitive approach to creating and manipulating form within a digital realm with the final goal of outputing physical objects via various rapid prototyping machinery devices (i.e. 3D printing, laser cutting, etc.).

Priority enrollment to Industrial Design majors.
