04/15/ 2004 Prof. Tang was Interviewed with Alias Maya.
Maya for Design Visualization
After employing Maya and StudioTools in the industrial design and animation programs for several years, SCAD recently brought Maya into the architecture discipline where students are using it for interior and exterior visualization. Professor Ming Tang, of the architecture department, says the software is allowing students to start from the very beginning with a 3D plan, rather than creating 2D elevations and sections, and building up from there. “The polygon and NURBS modeling in Maya are extremely accurate,” explains Tang. “That helps the students learn very fast.”
