2020 unit offering information will be available in September 2019
Introduces the practical aspects of making small 3D printed objects in a workshop, embracing workshop practices, modelling techniques and using manual or semi-automated tools. Students undertake programmed exercises in model making including three-dimensional form development, and gain an understanding of the physical and chemical properties of modelling materials and laser cutting.
- Understanding basic software for design fabrication
- Design, scanning, printing, cutting
- Component design
- Production methods
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
