The design stages involved in land development and building design (Architecture) are surveying, 2D drafting, 3D modeling, and analysis. The courses provide exposure to multiple combinations of tools encompassing AutoCAD, Revit Architecture, Civil 3D, ANSYS Civil, 3Ds Max, STAAD.Pro and ArchiCAD to suit the career choices of students in civil, architecture / building, and interior design. They comprise the entire engineering and architectural design cycle – from 2D drafting, 3D modeling landscaping, structural analysis, and project planning & management.
Autodesk 3ds Max software provides a comprehensive 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing solutions for different industries. It was developed and produced by Autodesk Media and Entertainment. It has modeling capabilities, a flexible plugin architecture and can be used on the Microsoft Windows platform. Though it is frequently used by video game developers, TV commercial studios, architects are one of the important users of 3ds Max for visualization. AutoDesk’s 3dS Max is widely used by architects and civil engineers for 3D visualization of their designs. Though, you will use CAD software for drawings, you can bring them into 3dS Max for rendering photo-realistic visualization. Though you can get decent renders out of CAD software, 3ds Max can provide the control you need in your render settings. Most architects and engineers use CAD software and BIM tools for modeling and prefer 3ds Max for rendering.
Autodesk- Revit Architecture is a Building Information Modeling software tool for architects, structural engineers, engineers, and contractors. It allows users to design a building and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements and access building information from the building models database. Revit software delivers tools that support architectural design, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and construction. Revit is specifically built for BIM to help you design, build, and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings. Comprehensive features make it an ideal solution for the entire building project team. By learning Revit, you as a design and construction professional, will be able to bring ideas from concept to construction with a coordinated and consistent model-based approach.
