3D MODELING & ANIMATION


1. TO TAKE A STEP FORWARD WE
CHANGE DIRECTION

There are many fine ways of doing illustration work. But as the years have rolled on, 3D tools have begun to take over large swathes of the illustrative market. There are many good reasons, such as the photo-realistic qualities of the results are outstanding. Any 3D can be pushed into service for illustrative work. Like illustration work, animation existed years before 3D showed up. Cell animation is still done today. But for the most part, all the major shops have moved over to 3D production, so if you want animation, that is largely the way to go.

6. INSPIRED BY THE 3D
PROFESSIONALS

We focus on developing skills in any one of the many areas of expertise within the animation and visual effects industry. The program educates students in all aspects of animation and visual effects, from ideation to post production. Communication, collaboration, and time management skills are emphasized throughout the program to ensure graduates are acclimated to the intense professional culture that awaits them.

5. THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE
PROFESSIONAL DESIGN

Students are trained to demonstrate the ability to produce a body of work suitable for seeking professional opportunities in their chosen field of art and design. Solve creative problems within their field of art and design, including research and synthesis of technical, aesthetic, and conceptual knowledge. Communicate their ideas professionally and connect with their intended audience using visual, oral, and written presentation skills relevant to their field. Execute technical, aesthetic, and conceptual decisions based on an understanding of art and design principles.

4. 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY IS
EVERYWHERE

Desktop 3D printing manufacturing technology can be done at home, the office, a hospital or a school, bringing manufacturing to non-manufacturers the way PCs brought computing to non-traditional environments. At the same time, 3D printing, long used for rapid prototyping, is being applied in a number of industries today, including aerospace and defense, automotive and healthcare. As accuracy has improved and the size of printed objects has increased, 3D printing services are being used to create such things as topographical models, lighter airplane parts, aerodynamic car bodies and custom prosthetic devices.

3. AN
ICONIC COLLABORATION

The culmination of partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision, and mutual regard, Autodesk University, Blender Institute & Zbrush is a unique and iconic collaboration in 3D modeling, rendering and 3D printing. 3D skills have been around for decades. What's new is that 3D printing has reached consumer-friendly price points and footprints, new materials and techniques are making new things possible, and the Internet is tying it all together. Technology has developed to the point where we are rethinking industry. The next industrial revolution is opening up manufacturing to the whole world where everyone can participate in the process.

2. 3D STILL LEADS THE
WAY

3D still leads the way and is always breaking new ground. This is what made so many people decide to go into 3D in the first place because the market isn't as boring today as it once was thought to be many large companies does their corporate communications with 3D, video, photography, and even animation creation. The nice thing about this market is that you need not live in any particular geographic media hub to find such a position.
