Course detail

3D Modelling and Virtual Reality

FSI-GVRAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course makes students familiar with parametric voluminous simulation with the help of structural members. It deals with practical application of computer technology required for mastering basic methods of creation of parts, assemblies and drawing documentation with implementation create models into virtual reality.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will have an overview of parametric systems and VDP (Visual Decision Platform)master the work in Proengineer and IC:IDO.
