21-2750 3D NURBS Modeling


Freeform surfacing modeling is an approach to computer-aided design originally used by the automotive industry but now commonly found in many software packages. This studio is meant to augment the CAD classes that use Solidworks by introducing students to another industry-standard software, Rhino, using non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) to create a broad range of sophisticated nurbs-surfaces. The emphasis is on faster workflows as well as creating surfaces and forms that are difficult to accomplish with parametric modeling software programs. In this elective course, students execute a range of projects relating to coursework in other design studios to integrate learning across curriculum.
