The 3D Design module covers the main concepts and skills needed to create three-dimensional drawings using computer-aided design (CAD).
This module develops the knowledge and skills to use 3D design software for tasks such as manipulating objects and rendering photo-realistic graphics
using lights, textures, and backgrounds.
This module is suitable for students, designers, engineers, architects, technical staff, and people who want to build on their 2D CAD skills by exploring the potential of 3D modelling. CAD is used extensively in a wide range of industries.
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
Leaving Certificate or equivalent, fluency in the English language and intermediate computer literacy level are required.
You will be required to complete and pass a basic IT Literacy entry quiz at the start of the course, if you do not pass the quiz you will not be able to continue with the programme.
