Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Knowledge and understanding of basic knowledge and skills in the use of programs for three-dimensional virtual creation models. An overview of the possibilities of using and using photorealistic visualizations, including a certain degree of practical skills.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


Students will get acquainted with the basic methods of creating three-dimensional virtual models in the field of industrial design and the basic use of 3D NURBS modellers - the RHINOCEROS program, including its V-Ray plug-in module, for photorealistic visualization.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Forma je jak praktická, tak verbální. Hodnocení jednotlivých vypracovaných zadání (u výsledků tvůrčí práce a referátů se předpokládá také zátěž mimo přímou výuku) bodovým systémem předchází otázky a rozprava. Během semestru probíhá několik kontrol rozpracovanosti. Výsledné hodnocení je průměrem hodnocení jednotlivých.


Other requirements

Another requirement for a student is basic user skills with any 2D graphics editor.
