No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

BSBDES303 Explore and apply the creative design process to 3D forms

Element:

1 Source information on 3D design

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Identify and access relevant sources of information on 3D design
1.2 Evaluate and collate information to build knowledge of 3D design

Element:

2 Explore the creative design process for 3D forms

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Use creative thinking techniques to generate a range of ideas and options
2.2 Use experimentation to explore and challenge a range of different ideas
2.3 Challenge assumptions, reflect on ideas and refine approaches
2.4 Consciously change perspective, and evaluate ideas and situations in new ways

Element:

3 Communicate concepts or ideas through application of design processes to 3D forms

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Investigate and reflect on how a particular concept or idea might be communicated in 3D form
3.2 Select materials, tools and equipment relevant to the realisation of the concept or idea
3.3 Apply a creative design process to produce a range of 3D concept realisations
3.4 Reflect on own application of design process and success in communicating the concept or idea
3.5 Seek and obtain feedback from others about the 3D form and its success in communicating the concept or idea
3.6 Present and store concept realisations or samples in a format which takes account of the need for professional presentation and the work’s potential value for future jobs


Learning Outcomes


On successful completion of this course, you will have developed and applied the skills and knowledge required to demonstrate your competency in the above elements.


Details of Learning Activities
