After the course, you should have the skills required to use the program at a basic level. Sketches, concept modeling, modeling from sketches, modeling for manufacturing and rendering.

The goal after completing the course is that you should be able to:

Introduction

  • Understand how Alias ​​works, on a basic level

User interface

  • Understand and navigate the interface according to your needs

Modeling

  • Use the right methodology to create and modify designs in an effective way
  • Use curves for sequential modeling
  • Use direct modeling for fast modeling
  • Use the various traditional tools to create geometry
  • Use the editing tools for curves and surfaces
  • Use the analysis tools

Import / export

  • Manage CAD data in a good and easy way

Visualization

  • Use existing materials, and create your own materials

Exercises

The exercises are pedagogically structured. The focus is on the right methodology for you to learn from the beginning to model, handle materials, light and more, in an effective way.

Previous knowledge

Basic knowledge in drawing technology is a requirement, which means that you must know what a drawing is and what it should look like.
