Industrial Graphics 4: SurfaceWestern Sydney University Unit Code: 300312.3


Student Contribution Band: 2

Level: 3

Credit Points: 10

Assumed Knowledge
It is assumed that students attempting IG4: Surface will be familiar with and capable at 3D solids modelling as delivered in 300310 (IG3: 3D Solids) and graphic design/illustration and page layout as delivered in 300302 (IG1: Presentation). Students from within the ID and Design & Technology degree courses should have completed these core units before attempting IG4: Surface. Students taking this as an elective from outside of the ID and Design & Technology degree courses should note that these skills will be assumed.

Equivalent Units
10963 - Industrial Design Communication 3: Materials and Properties, J2868 - Industrial Graphics (Surface), 301091 - Graphics 4: Kinetic Narratives

About this Unit
From 2016 this unit will be replaced by 301091 Graphics 4: Kinetic Narratives. Starting with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea, having the ability to accurately model your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis and manufacturing is an essential skill set for designers in all disciplines. The ability to generate 3 dimensional data and in particular, free-form 3D data within a computer and display that data in a range of formats provides a powerful design, visualisation and analysis tool. This unit introduces students to the fundamentals of 3D Wireframe, NURBS Surface and Boundary Representation (Brep) Solids Modelling and then focuses on the tools and processes available for producing a range of image types from these 3D models.
