Course detail

Computer Technology III - 3D Computer Graphics

FA-VY3CompulsoryBachelor's (1st cycle)Acad. year: 2010/2011Winter semester2. year of study1  credit

The subject provides basic information in the field of graphic vector editors and their use in architectural design. It covers the fundamentals of 3D computer graphics and the practical use of the theoretical knowledge at work with vector editor AutoCAD 2011 and Autodesk Architectural 2011. The subject's aim is to master the procedures so that the students be able of independently working out 3D model of the studied objects.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The studens will be able to work with 3D graphic data in the AutoCAD 2012 and Autodesk Architectural 2012 environment, and to develop a spatial model of the studied object.


The students are expected to have basic information on computer graphics, be able to work with 2D grapic data, orientate themselves in the AutoCAD program environment.
