Prepare 3D digital models for production

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver CUFANM401A, 'Prepare 3D digital models for production'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Reference books for 'Prepare 3D digital models for production' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



Clarify work requirements

1. With reference to production documentation, clarify requirements and purpose for 3D digital models

2. In consultation with relevant personnel, clarify work flow sequences to ensure that production schedule deadlines are met

3. Select software that best suits the type of production and delivery platform for which 3D digital models are being prepared

4. Gather and analyse reference material to help with visualisation of final models

Prepare 3D models

5. Build and modify shaders to achieve required outcome

6. Apply texture coordinates or UV mapping as required

7. Paint required texture maps

8. Use appropriate lighting techniques to light the 3D models as required

9. Rig 3D models as required, ensuring that controls are logical and easy to use, and that rigs are robust and perform to specifications

10. Set up model deformations as required

11. Use scripting language as required to enhance the functionality of rigs

12. Create morph targets or blend shapes as required

Finalise 3D digital models

13. Test models to identify faults, and adjust as required

14. Submit final models to relevant personnel by agreed deadlines

15. Make back-up copies in accordance with enterprise procedures

16. Complete workplace documentation as required

17. Render final models as required

18. Review process of constructing 3D digital models and note areas for future improvement
