Alias Level 1: Intro to Alias

Alias Level 1: Intro to Alias

Course Duration: 40 hours

Tuition: $2,300 USD

Overview: Autodesk Alias Design is a 3D design software for industrial designers and sometimes engineers.  The software empowers a creative process with a range of sketching, modeling, surfacing, and visualization.  Designers can create designs with tools tailored for industrial design, automotive design, and technical surfacing. Get the advanced capabilities you needed, from initial concept sketch to development of production-ready Class-A surfaces.  Participants in this course will learn about Alias Design & surface modeling, then discuss general and often more advanced modeling approaches relating specifically to Alias Design.
