Course Objectives The course aims to equip students with fundamental knowledge of model-making techniques and materials. By learning these techniques, students will develop their ability to think in two and three dimensions, enabling them to effectively communicate their design processes and creations.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Develop the perception of three dimensions through practical examples.
  • Learn how to create three-dimensional models and use them as presentation tools.
  • Utilize skills such as precise cutting, neat gluing, folding, and meticulous surface treatment to create physical models from a variety of materials.
  • Learn about the aesthetic and tactile properties of different materials.
  • Develop design concepts by analyzing design solutions in three dimensions.
Course Content Implementations on model making process to improve manual and mental skills; transfer of two dimensional drawings on three dimension and researches on various materials.
