A-Level – 3D Product Design
3D PD encourages students to think creatively, converting ideas and a wide range of materials into the products and services that we all need and use every day of our lives. Everything around us has been designed and this subject enables students to gain a better understanding of the world they live in and to improve and sustain this for future generations. 3D PD is a creative and technical subject which involves designing, making and problem solving, innovating for improvement. Students use the iterative design process to develop innovative solutions to realistic problems and will be introduced to a range of design, modelling techniques and CAD packages as well as being able to work in Polymers, Paper and Board, Timbers, Textiles and Metals.
