Tutor: Dr Scott Mayson & Dustin Bayley

In this course, you will extend your knowledge and skills in the digital design and development process to design and produce complex forms, products and assemblies. You will design, revise, animate and evaluate three-dimensional forms within a digital environment including mechanical simulations, finite element analysis, software enabled life cycle assessment, and incorporate parametric approaches that allow you to alter complex surfaces and assemblies on the fly.

You will connect your digital modelling knowledge to a range of technologies and processes used in computer aided manufacturing and visualisation. This will include converting CAID outputs into high-quality renderings for presentation, using industry standard conventions for the transmittal of design drawings and specifications, and incorporating cutting-edge technologies such as 3D laser scanning, 3D printing and rapid prototyping into the digital design and development process.
