DNB211 ID Studio 4: Manufacturing Technology

This unit introduces the skills and knowledge to transform design ideas into manufacturable products. It provides experience and skills in creating 3D CAD models and using them to communicate design intent. As such, the unit increases your knowledge of the commonly used materials and processes and of how their manufacturing constraints and opportunities affect the design process. The industrial designer needs to possess skills in translating these constraints and opportunities into viable product designs and to be able to communicate their design intent with sufficient detail to allow that product to be manufactured according to industry standards and capabilities. This unit introduces you to the principles of Design For Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) and extends your Computer Aided Design (CAD) skills. The skills and knowledge covered by this unit are amongst those highly sought after by employers and will be applied in all subsequent ID studio units.
