Course detail

3D Digital Technology and CAD

FSI-RS1Acad. year: 2019/2020

The course is focused on modern technology and modern methods used in the development and design of a product. Lessons focused on engineering CAD systems are uniquely extended about the areas of the rapid prototyping, 3D digitization, virtual reality and reverse engineering. Students will gain a comprehensive overview of the technology portfolio in the design, pre-production and production phases of the product life cycle. Teaching is based on high-tech facilities.
The course has been upgraded with the support of the OPVK project. "The Studio digital sculpture and new media project", reg. No. CZ.1.07/2.2.00/28.0278, is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the statebudget of the Czech Republic.
