Alias has long been an industry standard modeling software used for automotive design. Autodesk is in the process of making a very significant investment into Alias, with enhancements to the user interface, new modeling paradigms, and the API. Matt Sederberg, Sr. Product Line Manager for Alias, will talk about the evolving trends in automotive design and how Alias is being enhanced to meet these demands. This session features Alias SpeedForm and Alias AutoStudio.
Uwe has 17 years of experience in industrial design and 3D surface modeling in the automotive industry prior to his role as Product Manger for Alias at Autodesk.
Uwe has a deep knowledge of automotive concept design and technical surfacing and currently focuses on coordinating the Alias development and design teams to build Alias Automotive and Alias Surface. In his role Uwe is identifying and defining market and user requirements. He communicates with automotive designers worldwide to enable his development teams to come up with leading edge technology each release.
Uwe received a Master’s Degree in Engineering and Technical design from the University of Technology in Dresden, Germany.
3D car modeling is quite a complex process and difficult to learn. This class will be a great opportunity for you to study the theory of 3D car modeling technique from Giichi Endo, a real car designer from Nichinan Corporation. Through this class, you'll be able to see and learn secret sculpt modeling techniques that Giichi has developed throughout his carrier. Giichi is a former Nissan car design director and his sculpt modeling technique is quite superb. He has more than 4 years of experience in sculpt modeling, plus more than 20 years of experience in Alias software.
Almost every original equipment manufacturer and design studio is trying to shorten the design process. And not just shorten the process-they want more and more innovative designs. More variants, shorter process. How could we make this happen? The answer is never far. It's time to let the designers get into the real 3D design world. Alias software is not just a tool for surface modeling. It is far beyond that: it is supposed to be the designers' playground. You can sketch 2D, model 3D, sketch 3D, and communicate with digital sculptors on one model, one platform. This class will explain how.
This presentation will show the creation of a concept seat, from using Autodesk® Alias® Speedform for creating the design and shape, to Autodesk® Alias® software for detailing like the stitching and other complex details, and finally Autodesk® VRED™ software for creating high-end renderings.<br/><br/>The presentation will show a seamless workflow from start to finish, and will give tips and trick about the latest features of each software that is used.
Generative design is a process that enables you to develop and explore an entire space of plausible designs at an unprecedented speed, yielding new and unimagined results. As an approach to problem solving, generative design combines big-picture processes and abstract thinking to unlock creativity and drive product innovation. This session will focus on the unique generative-design capabilities made possible with the Dynamo extension, a platform for visual programming, and T-Splines. Attendees will learn quick and more efficient workflows, using simple primitives and symmetry operations, to create complex geometry ready for rapid prototyping. Additionally, we will cover best practices for importing and exporting data from/to Alias software and Alias SpeedForm software. This session features Dynamo Studio and Alias SpeedForm. AIA Approved
The purpose of this discussion is to help shape the future design of Alias software. We will discuss the potential impact of innovations in design and technologies. You will have a chance to impact change that could increase productivity within Alias software workflows. We will detail problems in current product offerings, and discuss how new technologies and designs could help. We will also discuss how tablets and other modern devices and technologies could impact the future of making things within Alias software. Come willing to participate in this collaborative discussion. How will you and other users be involved in influencing the future interface of Alias software? This session features Alias Automotive, Alias SpeedForm, and Maya.
