Learn 3D Modeling + Design
DMA’s 3D Modeling + Design courses take students through the design process helping them to learn the tools and techniques they’ll need to be professional animations, designers and 3D modelers. In Wearable Tech & Fashion Design students will gain hands on experience in 3D modeling for fashion design, programming, electrical circuitry, stitching and more. Using the same software as the pro’s, students will walk away at the end of the week wearing their own creations ready to take on the design world!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do students need any fashion design experience?
No. No previous experience is necessary, although familiarity with stitching by hand is helpful. If the student does have a background in 3D modeling for fashion design or programming for Arduino™, this course provides an excellent opportunity for that student to take their skills to the next level.
