The aim of this module is to introduce students to the principles of 3D modelling and parametric design, while emphasizing their connection to the creative design process. Students gain an understanding of the various workflows for digital modelling, texturing, animation, lighting and rendering, and generative techniques for the creation of complex assemblies.

On completion of the module a student should be able to

  • Understand and critically evaluate the role of computational methods in the design process.
  • Select and use appropriate digital techniques for the generation and construction of 3D models.
  • Critically evaluate the role of parametric techniques in the design process.
