Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 1
0.50 Credit(s)
This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of designing, prototyping and fabricating small-scale products and jewellery using three-dimensional computer modelling and associated manufacturing technologies. Students will become familiar with the Computer Aided Design operations required to generate simple three-dimensional computer models and output
basic two-dimensional representations. These virtual objects will be then translated into prototypes and finished objects using Computer Aided Manufacturing processes (e.g. laser cutting, additive manufacturing and CNC machining) as well as conventional fabrication processes. Students will begin to understand some of the advantages and limitations of CAD/CAM technologies, and will begin to consider the implications these technologies have on the future of design practice.
Notes: Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
