There's a greater need for engineers to have experience with complex modeling as we get farther away from traditional manufacturing and design. In this course, we'll overview various complex topics such as the creation of sculpted bodies, working with surfaces, and generating renderings and visualizations of products. These modeling and design skills can open up a world of possibilities for your next project.

After completing this course series, you'll be able to:

  • Create basic sculpted bodies.
  • Create and manipulate advanced sculpted bodies.
  • Create surfaces using the patch workspace. 
  • Generate renderings and visualizations.
