Computer Aided Styling for Automotive Designers Course (Duration: 40 Hours)

Computer Aided Styling (CAS) focuses on creating exterior, interior, and color & trim designs - in short, visual appearance for automobiles. CAS modellers design freeform surfaces (also known as Class A surfaces) that combine form (aesthetics) and functionality (ergonomics). The CAS process involves the concept sketching, 3D modelling, and converting the model into CAD files.

This course teaches students how to interpret and convert 2D sketches into 3D digital surface models (exteriors and interiors) for real time evaluation. Students are trained in creating production-ready, high-quality Class-A surfaces (freeform surfaces), using AutoDesk’s Alias software. The course offers students ‘sports car design’ projects.

Course Structure
