This elective will involve modelling and interacting with complex urban sites focusing on modelling difficult terrains, both existing conditions and topographical manipulation. Students will investigate biomorphic/organic form making and representation techniques utilising procedural modelling using 3DS Max as well as plug-in and script use. Through investigating rapidly emerging digital modelling technologies, students will learn time-saving modelling, how to manage complex files, and how to move information between a range of software.
Intended learning outcomes
Throughout class, students will ‘record’ all that they learn with a ‘digital how to’ style manual. Students will be taught rapid knowledge capture techniques with the introduction of IrfanView capturing used with InDesign and Acrobat PDFs and video capture with Jing.
