Course handbook


This course introduces students to spatial techniques and processes used in the creation of 3D objects. Students will develop works in multiplies or series, using a range of production processes and techniques, and they will learn to use 3D modelling software to create conceptually resolved 3D works in series.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Employ technical knowledge and practical skills in 3D production;

2. Determine the conceptual rationale for making a series of works using applied processes;

3. Apply 3D or 'spatial' research to production of multiples;

4. Undertake project-based research and documentation of work;

5. Produce resolved and finished 3D material outcomes.


Topics will include:

  • 3D Modelling and techniques;
  • 3D Printing and modelmaking;
  • Theoretical contemporary practice, concepts and context;
  • Research and documentation;
  • 3D workflows


To enrol in this course students must have successfully completed 40 units at the 1000 level. Students who have successfully completed AART2330 or AART3330 cannot enrol in this course.
