Training objectives

Use the 3D model as a tool for design, simulation, prototyping and presentation. Define own professionals, able to control various aspects of the design process, using the most advanced methods and techniques available.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of raster and vector graphics.

Course programme

Acquisition of theoretical and methodological tools for the planning and operations related to the production: creation of 3D digital models through the use of three-dimensional scanners, creation of physical models, methodologies and techniques of virtual prototyping, training project, photo shoots and presentation project.

Students will be able to apply their knowledge, even in contexts and multidisciplinary fields in order to solve problems related to new issues.

The educational tools used to achieve these objectives include laboratory work, and in the classroom.

At the end of the course students will be able to handle a production cycle, from the mockup to the presentation, using the tools acquired during the courses such as physics modeling, acquisition laser scanners, surface modeling, real-time rendering, product photography



The teaching methodology not designed to bring a comprehensive knowledge of the tools but to their specific operational capability. The student will therefore be introduced to a critical use and planning of work methods



At the end of the course students will be able to handle a production cycle, from the mockup to the presentation, using the tools acquired during the courses such as physics modeling, acquisition laser scanners, surface modeling, real-time rendering, product photography, and Stop Motion video editing.

Didactic methods

Lessons will take place at the laboratories of the Department of Architecture at different stages of the course. The phase of shooting and capture 3D Photographic laboratory, making mockups in laboratory models and the phase of 3D modeling in Computer Laboratory.



The laboratories are equipped with all the necessary equipment for the course, including September ede illuminators for photo shoots and two 3D scanner optical triangulation Konica-Minolta.

They will use the following software:

-Adobe Photoshop, image processing, typesetting

-Raindrop Geomagic Studio, 3D scan data management

Learning assessment procedures

The activities will be monitored step by step: photo shoot, making mokup, acquisition of 3D shape, 3D modeling object This will determine whether the student has mastered the tools, methodologies and judgment. The examination material will consist of a Book-porfolio (format A4 print and digital video) containing the result of the work done during the activities carried out during the course.
