This is a second level course for individuals already having a basic knowledge of Form Z, picking up from where Form Z I / 3D Modeling and Rendering leaves off. The course will experiment with different features of the Form Z modeling package for architectural design, and present the more advanced topics for 3d modeling, lighting, texturing, and rendering. The course will emphasize on tips, tricks and techniques that help achieve high quality models and representations. Students may use their own work from studio or previous CAD classes as the project basis for their modeling and rendering assignments.
