Interior and Architectural Design


Interior & Architectural Design

The primary goal of this course is to focus on one of the most exciting areas of Interior Designing and Architectural Design with the help of CAD - the creation of two dimensional and three-dimensional drawings. This course is designed to meet the needs of any individual who has interest in interior design, architecture and other 2D and 3D design fields and who want to work in the interior, architectural, furniture and any product design firm. The course begins with the understanding of interior design ideas, architectural structures, product design concepts and creation of simple 2d drawings, and evolves into the complex creation of solid 3D models.



Concept of Interior & Architectural Design

We will cover the following topics in this section:

  • Elements of Design
  • Space Planning
  • Color Themes and Psychology
  • Structural Design
  • Architectural Map
  • Dimensional Analysis
  • 2D and 3D elevations
  • Solid Modeling
  • Lighting
  • Technical Drawings
  • Floor Planning
  • Product Making in 2D and 3D
  • Prototyping

To implement the above ideas and make them real project we will get great command on auto-cad and 3Ds-Max.

Auto-Cad (2D and 3D)

With auto-cad, participants will learn to do 2D drafting, architectural drawings and 3D modeling of architectural and mechanical objects like buildings, machine parts, products and furniture models. To achieve all these objectives following 2D and 3D skills will be taught:

2D Drawings in Auto-CAD

  • Introduction
  • Layers
  • Open and Save Drawings
  • Controlling the Display Area
  • Editing Objects
  • Creating 2D Geometry
  • Creating Objects

3D in Auto-Cad

Creating 3D objects is very interesting and this area is divided in 8 parts so that students may have easy and clear understanding. We will start with Basic 3D Concepts and learn following things with deep details:

  • Part 1 - Basic 3D Concepts
  • Part 2 - Working with 3D Coordinates
  • Part 3 - Creating Surfaced Objects
  • Part 4 - Solid Modeling Concepts
  • Part 5 - Composite Solid Models
  • Part 6 - Working with Solid Models
  • Part 7 - Advanced 3D Concepts
  • Part 8 - Plotting 3D Models

3D Studio Max

We will start 3D max from very basic stage and learn the following parameters:

  • Understand the mechanics of 3ds Max
  • Be able to create 3d models using a variety of techniques
  • Work with materials to texture your models
  • Understand how to light a scene
  • Understand the complete features of camera
  • Be able to create animations and stage a scene
  • Learn how to use the Mental Ray render engine
  • Learn how to use the V-Ray render engine.

The course shall follow a highly practical approach, whereby students shall be creating their first models directly within the first lesson. Course shall follow the standard 3D creation process, which can be broken down into the modeling, animating, material and lighting phases. We shall also be addressing specific issues related to mental ray rendering, an advanced rendering engine like V-ray, which is included with 3DS Max and offers realistic renders whilst being user friendly. Basics of modeling shall then be developed further through more detailed examples. Certificates will be given upon completion of the course.
