Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 2
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: GDES 3B20 Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 1
This course will build on the knowledge and skills acquired in Small Object Design: Virtual to Reality 1, by introducing advanced Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing topics in the context of further small-scale product and jewellery design and production. Students will become familiar with the CAD operations required to create complex three-dimensional parametric computer models, and output sophisticated two-dimensional representations including realistic renderings. Students will also become familiar with advanced CAM issues, such as process integration, optimization for manufacture, mass customization, material experimentation and aesthetic considerations. Students will achieve a substantial understanding of the advantages, limitations and implications of CAD/CAM technologies, and will consider how their own emerging practices might best incorporate these technologies.
Notes: Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
