Prepare your model for 3D printing with Alias software

This Alias software tutorial is written and designed to provide 3D printing enthusiasts with accurate instructions for designing 3D files that are “3D Printable”

By the end of this Alias software tutorial you should be able to:

Alias software is a complete professional surface 3D modeling software, which uses ‘NURBS’ type surfaces to produce closed shapes, instead of solids. This modeling approach is at the core of the Alias technology, and provides you with complete control over every point on your model’s surface and makes the dynamic editing of its aesthetic appearance possible. This industrial design software is an Autodesk product.

This 3D CAD software —Alias software— is generally used by professional designers and engineers operating in the industrial and automotive industries. Indeed, Alias software is particularly suited for design engineering, automotive designs, various product designs, industrial design, the creation of a rapid prototype, architecture engineering, and civil engineering. Alias 3D software can also be used for game design, even if it’s more oriented toward computer-aided industrial design.

Alias releases a free CAD software package or sample kit for students and its free packages come with the same exact features that can be found in its commercial packages, which is great for any young Alias designer. You can get some information on the operating system requirements of this 3D modeling software on Autodesk’s website. You will then be ready to download this 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) Autodesk software and start enjoying its 3D modeling and visualization features. 

A basic understanding of Alias software is required in order to get the most out of this tutorial, it is not meant for learning Alias software’s basic features. Autodesk provides lots of great videos and tutorials for getting started with Alias software.
