About this facility

The 3D modelling workshop is a dedicated facility for fabricating three- and two-dimensional superficial and prototype models. The workshop is used by students for project proposals and creating designs , making tangible, realistic representations from given materials, typically plastics and timber, and surface finishing to high standards.

Examples of student modelled work include:

  • Product design: MP3 player, espresso maker, commode, car.
  • Art and graphic design: etched imagery, letter shapes.
  • Fashion design: various materials patterns, etched earrings.
  • Marine craft: plywood boat hulls.
  • Animation and special effects: animated figures, scaled set pieces.

These material forms are achieved by the appropriate choice and student preferred method from a range of automated and manual machinery and portable power and hand tools, according to user requirement and craft level of development, assisted by instruction.
