Course Description

Developed for makers, artists, designers, and inventors, this course provides an exciting introduction into the 3D design practices transforming both our physical and digital experiences. The course explores and connects two distinct fields of practice: the use of 3D digital modeling for the design and prototyping of physical objects; and the application of 3D digital modeling in the design of virtual experiences. Enhance your capacity to envision and create 3D experiences while developing fundamental skills of 3D computer-aided design. Learn 3D modeling software and how to design and produce digital prototypes that can be adapted for physical 3D printing. Develop design thinking skills to creatively realize ideas and solve design problems such as how to print a broken part, modify or customize an existing design, or create something entirely new. Apply 3D design skills to create augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and other 3D content usable in metaverse applications. This course develops a broad skill set and conceptual understanding of how the physical and virtual worlds are becoming ever more intertwined through thoughtful and creative 3D design.
