Computer Graphics for Additive Manufacturing (CDE375)
This course will introduce engineering students to practical 2-D/3-D computer graphics and rapid prototyping. Special attention will be given to the 108 development of portfolio and presentation materials. Students will practice manipulation of 2-D bitmaps, scans, vectors and digital photos. Students will develop presentation graphics for print, animation, and the Internet using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. 3-D modeling and animation with 3-D’s Max 2010 will focus on architectural and product renderings. Solid Edge and CATIA models will be converted to 3-D’s Max for product visualization and animation. The class will end with a rapid prototyping project in which students explore options for printing out 3-D solid models.
