List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.
Set up and manage files for digital 3-D models of small-scale building design projects.
Files are created, named, saved and retrieved according to project and workplace requirements.
Digital two-dimensional (2-D) drawing files are imported as required using suitable file transfer protocols.
Files are exported and transferred for client and consultant use in required formats using suitable file transfer protocols.
Create digital 3-D models of building designs.
Sources of customised architectural objects for digital 3D models are identified and accessed.
3-D modelling functions of design software are operated to create 3-D model and additional objects according to project and workplace requirements.
Architectural objects are applied to 3-D models according to project and workplace requirements.
Produce digital 3-D model presentation.
3-D models are manipulated to create a range of views according to project and workplace requirements.
Dimensions and notations are applied to views as required.
3-D models are checked for accuracy, completeness and quality according to workplace procedures.
Presentation styles and display controls are selected and applied according to project and workplace requirements.
Present digital 3-D models to clients.
3-D models are presented and explained to client to ensure client understanding of designs, according to workplace procedures.
Client feedback is encouraged and incorporated into models.
Files for finalised 3-D models are saved and processed according to project and workplace requirements.
A person demonstrating competency in this unit must satisfy the requirements of the elements, performance criteria, foundation skills and range of conditions of this unit.
The person must also produce three-dimensional (3-D) models of building designs for three different projects, consisting of:
one Class 1 residential building of three storeys

one of the following non-residential projects which must be of a maximum area of 2000 square metres:
incorporating Classes 2, 5, 6 and 7a
incorporating Classes 3 and 9c
incorporating Classes 7b and 8.
In doing the above, the person must:
meet client expectations and workplace requirements
present digital 3-D models to clients and:
explain design using terms suitable for clients’ understanding
encourage and respond to questions and feedback.
A person demonstrating competency in this unit must demonstrate knowledge of:

building designers’ duty of care to ensure quality and safety of designs
contextual and site constraints to be reflected in model
conventional and sustainable construction materials and methods, including their application, behaviour, characteristics, performance and interactions with other materials
design drawing and representation methods
digital file management procedures
functions and operation of 3-D modelling software programs
hazards of site, materials, construction practices and building use over its life cycle
key features of building life cycles
legislation, codes and standards that apply to sustainable design requirements for small-scale building design projects specified in the performance evidence
organisational scope of business, service levels and fees relating to model production process.
The following must be present and available to learners during assessment activities:
computer with internet access and building information modelling (BIM)-capable building design software
inaccuracy to be identified and amended in 3-D model
access to information regarding compliance requirements
relationship with client:
client liaison is required.
according to project schedule.
As a minimum, assessors must satisfy the assessor requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) current at the time of assessment.
