Knowledge of computer graphics theory basics is expected, e. g. in the scope of course PB009 Principles of Computer Graphics. Students should know terms such as b-spline, polygon mesh, texture mapping or global illumination.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.

Course objectives
The main goal of the course is to give students practical skills and experience in the area of 3D modelling. Topics such as polygonal modelling, applying textures and lighting or basics of animation will be covered during practically oriented seminars. Emphasis will be placed on individual work of students. The course complements the theoretical lectures of PB009 Principles of Computer Graphics.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- create the 3D model of objects from given assignment (photo reference, blueprints, etc.);
- apply textures, materials and lighting to create the realistic 3D scene;
- create a simple animation of created model;
- postprocess a given model for further usage (e. g. 3D print, digital games, VR);
- apply learned processes in various 3D modelling software tools;
  • Basic terms and tools of Cinema4D software
  • Graphical primitives, constructive solid geometry
  • Parametric curves and surfaces
  • Polygonal modelling
  • Textures, materials and lighting
  • Animations
  • Sculpting
  • Composition, rendering
  • Postprocessing
Teaching methods
Practically oriented seminars. Each topic will be explained by a lector, then students will be working on prepared assignments individually.
Assessment methods
Active work on seminars,
three home works.
