Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Convert and integrate 3D models into Rendering software.
LO2 Evaluate settings for lighting, material and resolutions to create a photorealistic static visuals
LO3 Integrate settings to formulate high resolution visuals to presentation levels
LO4 Control materials objects and groups to synthesise model conversions between programs without error.
LO5 Evaluate, compare and experiment with different methods of concept generation & 3D modelling.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.

Students enrolling on this module will have to have an intermediate knowledge of Sketchup software and AutoCAD to complete Assignments.
 

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
3D VISUALISATION
Material naming Grouping. Convert 3D models from Sketchup into photorealistic rendering package such as Shaderlight, Vray or Lumion. Grouping and layering 'Sketch-up' objects and surfaces by material. Naming materials uniquely. Importing models, controlling scale, positioning and rotation. Navigating and orienting the model. Changing material finishes, lighting controls, emissivity, specularity, scale. controlling landscaping, sun-lighting, shadows and atmosphere. Setting up photo realistic renderings. Material specification in Shaderlight, lighting adjustments, settings, resolution, post production montage/effects in Photoshop.
3D Concept Generation Methods
Concept generation methods driven from site analysis, context and use adopting divergence/convergence, derivation methods, aggregation/segregation technique, translation channels, and development layers.
3D Printing
File export protocols 3D printing protocols & an introducing to 3D printing from Sketchup CURA software interface and controls. Breaking down existing design into components for 3D printing. Troubleshooting, printing and assembly.

Assessment Type Assessment Description Outcome addressed % of total Assessment Date
Project Import an existing 3D environment into Sketchup, assign unique seamless materials to the model, give materials properties in Shaderlight and/or Lumion. Create artificial and natural lighting sources. Create a high resolution rendering that mimics a photorealistic environment. 1,2,3,4 35.0 Week 6
Project Using a conceptualisation method, iterate a concept for realisation as a 3D model, printed or assembled. Document the process and present the artefact. 5 30.0 Week 9
Project Convert or create an existing design 3D model to print on a 3D printer. Break the model down into components that would be feasibly and successfully printed. Assemble model for assessment. Include scaled entourage if required 4,5 35.0 Sem End
