Alias Concept Modeling Subdivision – Beginners Course

This is a beginners course for you who want to develop conceptual modelings in Alias using Subdivision modeling.

Alias Concept Modeling Subdivision – Beginners Course


In this course we will go through which tools that are used when concept modeling. We will learn how Subdivision modeling works and how to build models quickly, and for them to be stable. We will also work with so-called “Hybrid modeling”, as Alias is basically a NURBS modeler, so we have the opportunity to combine regular modeling with Subdivision.
