COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Create 3D geometry for modeling of architectural, interior design, and/or landscape design projects using computer software applications.
2. Produce rendered images, screen-captured images, and animations of architectural, interior design, and/or landscape design projects.
3. Provide real-time navigation through a building model, including display changes such as panning, zooming, orbiting, walk-through, camera setup and changes, and time-of-day and seasonal solar and shadow changes.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Utilize the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software application Autodesk Revit to create building models typical for residential or commercial projects.
2. Use digital tools to apply or control texture, color, light, and shadows to models.
3. Export models and views for use in other programs.
4. Import image or model information from other sources to use in model creation.
5. Print or plot graphic representations of 3D models in various visual styles including hidden line, grayscale, shaded, and realistic.
6. Prepare rendered and captured images of architectural, interior design, and/or landscape design projects.
7. Provide guided and animated tours of digitally created environments.
