MODULE 3: TECHNICAL DESIGN

The Technical Design module allows you to explore the concept of mechanical or technical
drawing in a modern format. In addition to traditional technical drawing software, you will have the opportunity to explore solid modelling software to represent your design work.

You will be expected to:
  • demonstrate an understanding of basic plan views and elevation views of an object or structure
  • use mechanical and technical communication language and symbols to create and illustrate a
    digital solid model
  • create advanced geometric constructions through digital techniques
