Three-dimensional Design is a mainly practical GCSE and is about the designing, prototyping, modelling or making of functional and aesthetic consumer products, interiors and architecture. Students will engage with appropriate processes, materials and construction techniques, using modelling techniques and working drawings to help take their initial ideas through to realisation.
Students will also gain an understanding that three-dimensional designers may work within a small team environment or work as freelance designers. They may be responsible for a particular aspect of the Design or Production process or for the entire design cycle. They will need good communication skills in order to liaise with clients and to promote themselves as three-dimensional designers.
