Course detail


FA-RHEAcad. year: 2020/2021

The subject will learn students to manage 3D modelling (advanced NURBS volume modelling) and basics of visualisation in Computer Aided Design. Rhinoceros 5.0 will be used in the course to reach this goal.


Department of Spatial Design (UPT)

Offered to foreign students

The home faculty only

Learning outcomes of the course unit
