Welcome to Creating to Scale!

Unit Outline

It is expected that in this four week unit you will learn:

  • Learn the basics of 3D modelling, terminology
  • The basic tools of secondary sculpting and 3D software
  • How to build a scale model.
  • How to present your model.

Assessment will be based on:

#1 – Understanding Scale Modelling – Learn the proper techniques, terminology, and concepts around scale modelling – 50 marks (based on correct completion)

#2– Learning other 3D Printing software – Using 3D apps as an alternate 3D Printing software program – 60 marks (based on correct completion)

#3 – Applying Techniques– a minor Project to test out the techniques you learned – 50 marks (based on correct completion, teacher observation, and a final presentation rubric)

#4 – Reflection/Review – a review of the unit for major components, a reflection on what you learned, and observations on other student projects –30 marks (based on correct completion)

All work is expected to be uploaded to your blog and when asked, to the teacher hand-in folder.

Week 1 – 2

#1 – Introduction to Scale Modelling – create a Word document and upload it to your blog.

#2 – Scale Model Tutorial – complete the tutorial and post on Unit 1 page your results.

Week 2-4 –

#3 – Scale Model Build– create your interpretation of a common object and upload work to your Unit 1 page on your blog.

Week 4 –

#4 -Reflection-Review – answer these final questions, create a reflection, present your Scale model, and “snip” comments left on other student blogs
