Learning Outcomes

Use of digital technique blends the creativity of design with mathematical computer engineering data to come up with a faster solution.

Use of DIGITAL PROTOTYPE to visualize & simulate the real-world performance of the design with less reliance on costly & vulnerable physical prototypes.

Churn out the maximum knowledge of all the tools in the software that helps to create your own concept vehicle and learn to render that concept vehicle through Keyshot.

In this section you will learn what exactly is ALIAS. What is the difference between Computer Aided Industrial Design (CAID), Computer Aided Designing (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) softwares. You will also learn about Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) of product and how the softwares are distributed. Why Automotive Industry relies on ALIAS and What is the History of ALIAS.

Software Installation

In this section you will download the ALIAS software and learn about its interface.

Working with Interface and Curve Introduction

In this section you will learn about controls & commands, navigation tools object selection & viewing, how to give outer dimensions (box method), working with layers, curves introduction & usage, details about curve terminologies, controlling & snapping the curve, grouping & ungrouping & setting pivots for objects, form factors introduction for curves, about blend curves (introduction to continuity parameters), and using key point curves.

Curve Editing

In this section you will learn about curve editing tools, duplicating curves, sectioning the curves, and reverse curve tools.

Explanation of Surface & Commands

In this section you will learn about terminologies of surfaces, difference between bezier & NURBS, curvature continuity, collinear & non collinear arrangements, construction tolerances & continuity tolerances, surface commands, curve network terminology and its use, analysing the surface from 2d to 3d, smoothing the patches, details about primary/secondary & tertiary surfaces, specific commands for secondary & tertiary surfaces, and to work with blends.

Surface Editing

In this section you will learn about projecting COS, trimming & stitching the surface together, planarizing hulls, conversion from NURBS to bezier.

Object Editing

In this section you will learn about extending the surface, alignment of surface with curves, making offset, smoothening the surfaces, symmetry of surfaces, and working with lattice rig.

Diagnostic Shading

In this section you will learn about details of different shades, how to analyze model with different shade options.

Design a Product

In this section you will learn to design a product using overlay canvas for design, surface understanding, modelling approach, using commands for surface creation, trial & error, continuity check, and applying fillets.

Conceptual Design

In this section you will learn about getting idea from reference sketch (Perspective view), cv sculpting for concept design development, understanding the weight of design, surface creation, and keeping the originality of design.

Automotive Design

In this section you will learn about importing canvas, providing tolerances, getting the dimensions, specifying the design & understanding the whole layout, approach from canvas to 3D, starting design with different pillars, using primary secondary & tertiary forms of surface, curve network creation & refinement, trial & error, patch planning & evaluating the patches, working on creating water tight model, evaluating the design, adding details, and locking the design.
