Digital Design Crash Course
Strategies & skills for working rapidly & creating beautiful work.
This 12 hour, pre-recorded webinar shows students and professionals how to utilize a variety of design software including AutoCAD, Revit, Sketchup, Rhino, Grasshopper, & 3ds Max. You will develop an understanding of the geometric limitations of each software, so you know what tools to work with based on your design interests.
We’ll also develop a workflow that will utilize Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign to help you create beautiful work, while saving you days worth of work, and we’ll share tips & strategies for developing material, entourage & beautiful drawing libraries.
At the end of this seminar you will know how to:
- Work faster in design software & manage your time in studio.
- Select the best design tool based on the geometry you want to make: simple or complex.
- Never pull an all-nighter again.
- Make 2d drawings in AutoCAD, Revit, Sketchup, Illustrator, Rhino, Grasshopper & 3ds Max.
