Intro to Digital 3D Modeling
In this course we will explore the world of digital 3D modeling using the program Autodesk Maya 2020. Over the last four decades DCC (Digital Content Creation) programs have become sophisticated, friendly to use, and accessible. This is a foundations course in digital 3D modeling. This course will cover an extensive range of modeling techniques and build a strong foundation for continued work in digital 3D modeling. During the seven-weeks, students will complete modeling exercises and create original works of their own design.
