Learning Outcomes

3D modellers working on relatively simple projects apply the skills and knowledge described in this unit. From reference material and established designs, they create 3D models using whatever software is applicable to the production.

3D models need to meet technical and design specifications, as well as being efficient, reliable, to scale, and easy to rig and animate.

Modellers need to appreciate what will be required of their models in later stages of production because this can affect the work they produce. Close liaison with other team members is, therefore, important. Even though a senior modeller or technical director supervises the creation of models, people at this level are expected to work autonomously within clear guidelines.

More complex skills associated with 3D digital modelling are covered in:

   CUFANM401A Prepare 3D digital models for production.
