This unit introduces students to 3D modelling within art & design studio practices. It builds sequentially upon the skills and knowledge of 3D design and imaging by providing a focus upon the practice and potential of 3D computer-generated modelling for product design. Students explore the creation, manipulation, composition and output of digital 3-dimensional elements with increasing confidence and proficiency across a range of options and controls available through polygon and NURBS-based software applications and the understanding of production issues associated with their output (ie. rendering, rapid-prototyping, multimedia etc.)
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
Exercises: 30%; Project: 60%; Journal: 10%
12 hours per week, including 4 contact hours (1 hr lecture plus 3 hours tutorial) and 8 independent study hours.
