Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


This course uses specific design tasks to impart basic knowledge of digital styling in 3D. The world's leading design software Rhinoceros V7 is used for this.
  • Basics of digital modeling with NURBS, overview and familiarization with 2D functions, working with primitives, transforming and arranging objects.
  • Modeling of curves and line objects, construction of surfaces from curves.
  • Construction and processing of 3D models with digital tools.
  • Visualization (hardware shade, lights, first renderings), area analysis, working with plugins, exporting data, integration into classic product development processes.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Students are able
  • to explain the difference between computer aided design and computer aided styling,
  • to explain the basics of digital modeling with NURBS,
  • to list the advantages of CAS in contrast to three-dimensional modeling possibilities,
  • to create simple models with design software Rhinoceros.


Will be announced during the lecture.
