Synopsis

This unit is an introduction to the techniques, frameworks and processes comprising 3D modelling and 3D imaging. Foundations of 3D aims to give students an understanding of 3D modelling by developing skills in 3D model creation for a variety of contexts, including 3D prototyping, 3D visualisation and 3D modelling for games and animation. Students will communicate their knowledge of 3D theory through the production of designs that demonstrate geometrical modelling, texture mapping, virtual lighting techniques, camera positioning, and rendering procedures.

Outcomes

At successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  • deploy 3D design applications over a range of digital media;
  • navigate the simulated spatial environment and taxonomy of the 3D discipline;
  • interpret issues involved in the 3D development process;
  • use 3D modelling and 3D imaging as a medium of digital graphic creation;
  • design, create and detail 3D models and scenes for various outputs;
  • evaluate and assess techniques used in the 3D creation process;
  • manage and implement efficient 3D modelling production workflows.

Assessment

In-semester assessment: 100% (includes 30% in-class/tutorial tests)
