This unit goes beyond the scope of CUVCOR07B Use drawing techniques to represent the object or idea and CUVCOR08B Produce drawings to represent and communicate the concept in terms of the complexity of skill requirement, use of techniques and sophistication of representation. This work would usually be carried out under supervision. This is a core unit which underpins many other specialisation units.
