Autodesk Alias is a computer-aided design software application for creating high quality manufacturable surfaces. It is mostly used in the automotive and industrial design industries to create feasible and aesthetically pleasing objects. I designed the user experience for the SubD toolset within Alias and ensured its seamlessness with the existing NURBS tools.
Making Alias more approachable for beginners.
The main issue with Alias is its steep learning curve. New users have to face a lack of available educational content to bridge their skill gap in NURBS modelling. This limited the growth of Alias.
Say hello to hybrid modelling to Alias.
Thanks to these tools that work just like subdivision surfaces, new users can produce 3D models that can be refined and reworked by more experienced users without ever exporting anything, or compromising on quality.
An accelerated concept design phase.
Many customers now enjoy shorter delivery times for their concept models and Alias is now more than ever horizontally integrated in the automotive design studio.
Thanks to the new Alias Subdivision software, we can quickly create and share the volumes of our ideas with our engineers to work on the best, feasible and cost-effective car models.
With Alias SubD and hybrid modelling, we are now able to reach presentation stage for concept models in a third of the time.
