Main learning outcomes

Successful candidates will be able to create, edit, and output a three-dimensional design or drawing. After passing this module, candidates will feel confident using a 3D CAD application to create high-quality designs. They will be able to:

  • understand how 3D design applications are used to create and modify drawings
  • use, save, and recall model view tools such as pan, zoom, and rotate
  • know how to draw points, lines, arcs, splines, circles, and polygons and use surface modelling to extrude surfaces and create planes,
    edge surfaces, and surface revolutions
  • create and manipulate object or graphic elements
  • know how to create photo-realistic presentations by rendering a model or scene
