The rise of electric vehicles and drones has brought about an interesting synergy with emerging viable flying cars. Through this studio will explore and develop a digital workflow for designing flying vehicles that could replace the family car.

We will be looking at digital sketching and form development with Autodesk Sketchbook and Fusion. Consider structures with generative modelling and structural analysis software and validate our vehicles with simulated human factors and aerodynamic software.

Finally, we will be presenting our vehicles through Rendering and VR packages for exhibition at semester Exhibition.

The studio is focused on developing your Design ability by acquainting you with available digital tools and to generate and refine your ideas. This is a CAD intensive course that will assist you to use RMIT and BYOD devices in your studio practice.

This studio capitalises on practice undertaken in Mobility + and Cockpit
