- The discipline of surfacing can be a somewhat complex and time-intensive undertaking, but there are some basic fundamentals that I will cover to help you through this course. It would be beneficial, but not essential, to have an understanding of basic CAD; in particular, the concept of continuity, constraints, and the difference between bezier and NURB surfaces. These topics, and many more, are covered in my course Alias Essential Training. Completing this course first would help you obtain a clearer understanding of the terminology used in Alias, and also the terminology used when working in a surfacing environment.
An essential part of maintaining a streamlined, rapid workflow in Alias is to utilize the marking menus shelves, and hotkeys. For a clearer understanding of how to do this, again, please refer back to my course, Alias Essential Training.
