“Class A” (or, “strak”) is a term used specifically in automotive design. It describes the final production surface data for the aesthetic parts of a car. The term “Class A” is often misunderstood, but it’s generally seen as the holy grail of surface modeling. This is because as it achieves the highest surface quality levels, it demands a high level of automotive design knowledge, as well as surface modeling skills. Class A represents the craftwork end of the design process. Creating the main surface shapes to describe the vehicle is the primary design activity. But the painstaking, detailed craftsmanship of perfecting those surfaces, designing flanges and panel gaps, is what guarantees that a beautiful design turns into a beautiful manufactured product. This class will cover the workflows and techniques involved in achieving Class-A-level production surfaces using Alias tools.
