This class covers the concept and creation of a new series of semisubmersible and one-atmosphere watercraft that make the underwater world more accessible. Design work was done in Autodesk Alias and carried through to the production of four vehicles. The class will start with design and cover other key elements required to bring the designs to reality, including construction issues, human factors, and the user experience. These new submersibles have the potential to change the way we interact with the element of water.

Autodesk Mudbox software is a creative design tool that combines free-form expression with ease of use to support the fast creation of initial design concepts. By using Mudbox early in the ideation phase, designers can explore more options, and then reuse and refine their design concepts within Autodesk® Alias®. Designers can become productive with a few days of training, even if they lack extensive prior experience.
Learn how to unlock your hidden ideas that burn inside. In this class, you will learn how Autodesk® SketchBook® Pro and Autodesk® Alias® Automotive can facilitate fast creative techniques, helping you create the punchy sketch and 3D visual to inspire, captivate, and stimulate your audience. Starting with 2D, the class will demonstrate the interface simplicity and natural workflow that is evident in SketchBook Pro. It will highlight the quality of the line weight and natural feel of the tools. Continuing to 3D, the class will touch on the translation of a sketch into Alias StudioTools and the use of quick visualization tools in Alias to output an image for retouching in SketchBook Pro. This case study will take attendees through the initial ideation phase of a design from rough sketch to a tighter presentable rendition. The workflow between SketchBook Pro and Alias will be highlighted. All data will be available for download.
