This subject extends students' basic modelling construction skills and introduces them to different modelling techniques and media. Students highlight the model's conceptual, generative and illustrational ability to convey design ideas across a range of scales. The definition of model in this subject is broad and the curriculum may include the notion of the model in both its physical and digital forms, with emphasis on the production of physical artefacts. Students develop a material sensibility that reveals the tactile, visual and structural potentials of any selected materials. The class explores additive, reductive and casting modelling techniques using diverse materials. Where appropriate, students extend their existing knowledge of software to incorporate advanced digital fabrication technologies, including milling, rapid prototyping and laser cutting.
