DMA 113 Digital 3D Design • 5 Cr.


This is a core requirement for the new DMA curriculum (previously was offered as DMA 106). This course introduces students to the foundational knowledge required to implement 3D digital assets in a production environment. Students will gain exposure to the elements and principles of design as it pertains to 3D digital spaces, as well as creating 3D digital sculptures. Prerequisite or concurrent enrollment: DMA 100.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Identify and apply the elements and principles of 3D design 
  • Use the tools and technologies associated with 3D Design 
  • Differentiate between 2D & 3D design elements and principles 
  • Explore and illustrate methods of presenting a 3D design 
  • Manage, store and retrieve visual assets using appropriate software 
  • compare and visualize traditional sculpture techniques to digital techniques. 
  • Express the 3D pipeline for the creation of a 3D model through a series of 3D sculptural projects
