E-courses MākZ2583: Digital Construction
Course annotation The aim of course is advanced studies of digital construction, using ArchiCAD with additional modules and independent rendering platform Artlantis Studio. Topics of this course are multi-story and complicated construction solutions for architecture modelling and rendering. Connections between different file systems and platforms are included in this course, to make most effective decisions and complex solutions for each construction and rendering.

Results In this course students will gain knowledge of ArchiCAD modules and their possibilities. Additional stardard modules will be studied for most complex solutions in 3D constructions. Students will learn to connect ArchiCAD project to other file systems and platforms via import and export. Students will gain skills to solve modelling and rendering of advanced constructions. Students will get competence of selection correct module and technical decision (methods) for exact project to create and render it technically and esthetically correct according to planned.
