- high intensity at the end (lv6,7 och tentaveckan)» (Around 25 hours/week)
- waaaaaay to much sometimes, 4h sceduled each day and atleast 4 more hours self study. » (At least 35 hours/week)
- People usually stayed in the computer labs until 5 or 6 PM on the days we had CAM lectures to finish the assignments. If you ad in time spent during the weekends then you reach 35 hours on a regular week quite easily.» (At least 35 hours/week)

- Some of the lectures involved subjects that had been introduced in earlier CAD courses. But on those occasions I was still in school doing previous cad assignments that I had yet to finish.» (75%)

Goals and goal fulfilment

- The data transfer between Cad-systems could have used a few more lessons.» (No, the goals are set too high)

- Still hard to evaluate when a surface is "good enough", easy to spend too many hours on it.» (Yes, definitely)
- The data transfer between Cad-systems could have used a few more lessons.» (Yes, definitely)

- Should be more complete, hard to only follow the written instructions if you missed a lecture, and sometimes even if you were attending it.» (Small extent)
- The course material is very unreliable as the instructions jumps from highly detailed to almost non existent. This lead to note taking being mandatory as you didn"t know if the pdf material describing the assignment would contain all the instructions or just some of them. The consistency should be changed so that the students know how much aid they can expect to get from the material.» (Small extent)
- you can search via Alias Help, but the program in it self learns you things» (Large extent)
- Really good pdf-material» (Great extent)

- One teacher, many students and a lot of time consuming questions.» (Rather poor)
- Good when the teacher was there, but very often he was on coffee break, and also we had to split the class up into two computer rooms, so he had to divide his time.» (Rather good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Overall structure.»
- Animation and rendering parts.»
- The audi project. »
- animation part»
- part 3, high quality surfices. »
- The assignments, the material, the lectures.»
- Everything seems important. »
- The technical surfaces and car modelling parts of the course were great. Especially the parts on how to use the diagnostic tools when something went wrong. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The handouts, more info is needed.»
- Earlier handin of animation giving more time for tech surfaces part.»
- Do we really need advanced surfaces? Couldn"t we focus more on producing good renderings and learning ways to model objects in a quick and easy way?»
- Put the advanced surfacing in the beginning of the course, so that you could use the way of thinking when for example modeling the audi. Not that you should do a class a surfacing, but the thinking helps even when producing basic surfaces!»
- Alias is not built for animation, put this part in another software, or make it alot smaller with maybe a fixed task instead of free task. And the teacher shoud better preper us of what alias cant do so we wont have to work late hours to try something nearly impossible. Also, the rendering is rather poor in alias. The same result could easaly be done in other software much faster. Instead: end the course with exporting-tasks (something I think is more important) and have the rendering in another software using competent GI lightning meathods such as mental ray with maya, or even better Vray renderer with 3d studio max or Rhino-(not as good as 3ds but still better. Faster than mental ray and with the same quality)»
- the workload is too high and really took lots of time to fifished them»
- The computer hatdware. Most of all new mouses.»
- More computers that work. »
- Emphasize that the sketchy car model done during the first weeks of the course is going to be used as a base to build a more advanced details later on. That would have saved our group a lot of trouble that originated from a sloppy made wire mesh. Decrease the part of the course that is focused on rendering and animation, Alias is a great surface modelling programme but it is miles behind its competitors in both rendering and animation. Combine those parts with the export lessons and use a programme with a modern rendering engine to do the car posters.»

16. Additional comments

- Learning a little about rendering in different programs (or with v-ray, mental ray, etc) would have been interesting.»
- One of the most fun and interesting courses in the whole programme.»
- Student feedback is nice but some feedback from the teacher should not be to much to ask for. Why isn"t this course graded? »
- none, i think it is a quite perfect course.»
