Evaluation of grades

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


This course imparts basic knowledge in digital modeling by means of concrete design tasks. The software Rhinoceros V7 is used for computer-aided surface design. The aim of the exercise is, in addition to the visualization of concepts, the practice-relevant creation of 3D data sets for transfer to other systems up to the generation of rapid prototyping models (CNC milling, 3D printing).

The beginner course includes the following contents:

  • 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.
