Design 3D Achitecture in 15 days

The course is about creating photorealistic architectural still images and all workflow stages. You will start from zero and build your project from beginning using Autodesk Revit for modelling and design. Next will be texturing, lighting and rendering with VRay for 3dsmax. Then you will switch to Photoshop for post-production.

Who is this course designed for?

Students, architects, professionals, interior designers and anyone in the creative design industry looking to develop their 3D animation skills or to get inspired through learning and doing. This is also suitable for Architecture and Interior Design Companies to train their staff in 3D visualization and improve their deliveries to clients.

What system configuration will I need?

Students should bring their laptops which should meet or exceed the following hardware configurations.

  • Windows® 10, Windows® 8, Windows® 7 or Mac OS
  • 32-bit/64-bit Intel or AMD multi-core processor
  • 2 GB of RAM minimum (8 GB recommended)
  • 16 GB of free disk space for installation
  • Qualified hardware-accelerated OpenGL® graphics card
  • 3-button mouse

Will I get a certificate at the end of my training?

Students will qualify for a certificate of training only if the pass the assessment exam at the end of the training course. Final score is based on attendance (10%), tests (30%) and a final examination (60%) based on the standard grading system.

COURSE OUTLINE

This course is a great start for students who are new to Revit and 3D Architectural Design or transitioning from different 3D software packages. We adopt a simple production-based training methodology and our students gain valuable inside knowledge from our years of hands-on experience in 3D architectural design.
