Course Objectives The aim of this course is to teach students the conceptual modeling, solid modeling, surface modeling and mesh modeling methods with the parametric modeling infrastructure by using the cloud-based 3D modeling program (Autodesk Fusion360).
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students will be able to create product designs with 3D solid, surface and mesh modeling techniques in computer environment.
  • Students will be able to use free form modeling and shaping (T-Splines) module.
  • Students will be able to revise their designs which consists of assembled parts, backwards with parametric modeling logic in 3D modeling environment.
  • Students will be able to work on the same model with different people at the same time and work collectively in 3D modeling environment with the help of the cloud system,
  • Students will learn to use technical drawing, 3D model, render, animation and analysis modules in a single interface in their designs
  • Students will be able to preview the knitting structure of the 3D model he/she designed, make pre-
Course Description This course covers the use of 3D parametric modeling program working with cloud infrastructure and transfer of effective and result oriented 3D models to the student as a result of collective use of different 3D modeling principles.
