Gain the skills and knowledge to communicate design concepts.
This course enables students to learn about a broad range of technical drawing skills and terminology. It is an introduction to the world of Technical Graphics where students develop skills in using computer software such as laser cutters and 3D printing, as well as traditional hand rendering techniques. This will enable students to design and create drawings in both 2 and 3 dimensions through a variety of processes including sketching, freehand rendering and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). You will study the basic elements and principles of design, discover concept development strategies and explore the techniques used by successful designers.
Technical Graphics is a subject suited to both male and female students as each project retains sufficient flexibility in design to cater to the interests of all participants.
Students will develop skills and knowledge in the following:
- drawing to Australian standards
- freehand sketching
- drafting software for computers
- two and three dimensional drawings
- engaging in design processes and problem solving
- presentation of finished solutions and folios.
This course leads to Year 10 Technical Graphics.
