3D Bioforms: Intro to 3D Modeling

Course No. BMA 345  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Hal Lewis

This course is designed to cover concepts in digital 3D organic and device model construction, whereby the virtual models designed are rendered and composited for 2D illustration purposes to solve specific visual communication problems. The subject matter within the Biomedical Art curriculum reflects the subject matter of natural science, medicine, and biotechnology. Students outside the Biomedical Art Major, are required to work with subjects appropriate to their major field of study for concept development and for long term portfolio objectives. Projects include concepts and workflow for constructing a virtual 3D surface by: (1) defining the visual problem within a concept drawing in pre-production, (2) utilizing specific introductory modeling methods to build the 3D illustration components, (3) the use of basic lighting and rendered materials, (4) export methods into Adobe Photoshop for illustrated compositing with digital illustration techniques and layout. Projects require the student to gain and improve upon research methods, visual communication skills, problem-solving in specific media (digital 2D & 3D) and technical proficiency at an introductory level in 3D modeling.
